The Spiral Lone Star quilt is finished.
It looks better than I expected, especially with all the fullness in the quilt top. Below is proof of the tucks and pleats, however I think that the curvy quilt motif along with washing & blocking the quilt help disguise them.
The pantograph used is Caliente by Urban Elementz which can be found as a free self-print design on their website.
While hand-stitching the binding on Spiral Lone Star, Charlotte’s Baskets was loaded and machine quilted. Since it is larger than my frame, I tried something different. I used a pantograph in the center of the quilt, free motion quilted a design in the inner border and quilted straight lines on the outer border. Right now the binding is being machine sewn on before the hand-stitching starts.
And of course, the next quilt top has been selected and the winner is –
Autumn Card Tricks (pattern by Eleanor Burns and pieced between 2002 – 2007). I plan to quilt Baptist Fans with a gold thread on this top. It feels great to get some quilt finishes at the end of the year.
