Quilting Floral Dreams

I was hoping to have a finish for today, but not quite.  Ah well, this should work out for TGIFF for tomorrow then!  this is Cynthia's of Quilting is More Fun Than Housework, June Scrap-a-Palooza quilt.

This is my first edge-to-edge design that is not a meander.  It was a little tricky.  The design itself flowed easily, two of my favourites: spiral and feathers.  Covering the quilt top evenly did not flow as easily!
Erk! An unquilted gap.
And another:

Guess I'll be going back in with my Bernina.  I caught several as I went, but when I looked at the back as I did my second roll-up, I found another gap I'd missed.  Ugh!  It's hard because the fabrics flow together so well, the thread (a rayon again) blends so nicely, both of which create the effect I wanted, but it's hard on the eyes as far as seeing where to go next, as well as seeing where you missed!

Nearly done. 

Here is a shot of the back:

It's a brushed flannel backing.  It will make for a really soft quilt.  I love how the design shows up so well!

This evening I sat down on the downstairs couch for a break.  I had immediate company, purring merrily.  Consequently my break went a little longer than anticipated!


I should have a finish for you tomorrow!  This one will be going in the boutique at our September Quilt Show.  It will be for sale through my blog though too.  Don't all jump at once now...
