Another one finished

On Monday, I finished a quilt that will be given as a wedding present for one of Jenny's good friends. I pieced the top during tax season....one of my "dont think....just sew" projects.

I really like how the rectangles float on the surface.


I debated for a long time about how to quilt it and ended up using my friend, Anita's, idea about printing out several photos of the quilt and practicing different quilting designs on paper. I finally decided to divide the quilt into areas and quilt each of those in a different pattern. All in all, I am fairly pleased with it. If you click on the photo, I think that you can see the quilting.

Thanks for commenting Le Ann. I have really enjoyed your book. I was using Bonnie Hunter's "Scrap Saver" system and added 5 inch squares to the mix after I read your ideas!!
