Another top finished!


I don't know why it took me so long to finish up this one! I wanted this quilt to be a little less square so since I was watching Ricky Tim's Caveman Quilting DVD, I decided to add some of his *dancing squares*. I was so tempted to add a bottom border too but since I'm trying to let go of my symmetric tendencies I just added the one border.
This will be another HeartStrings donation quilt and I think it will be quilted with my Swirls template from Circle Lord .

Love the hearts Mary! I've saved the picture for inspiration - I've found a gabillion strings while tidying up my quilting room. :)

Mary, you just amaze me. It seems like you complete a quilt everyday. It takes me weeks to complete just a top. How do you do it? I love this quilt, BTW, I am especially fond of bright colored scrap quilts.
Thanks so much for sharing your quilts with us.

I love your quilt and will look forward to photos after quilting. I am going to get the spiral template from Quilt EZ which is simiar. I love what those spirals and swirls do to a quilt!
