2 of 10 done

This HeartStrings top was pieced by the quilters at St. Mary's in CT and quilted with the Circle Lord Baptist Fan template. It's # 2 of 10 tops to be quilted in September.

And here's the top I finished quilting for Mom yesterday, trimmed and ready to mail back to her (#1 of 10). It's quilted with the pantograph Windy Day. It's kind of fussy but I don't worry about following the lines exactly.

those are some mighty smooth and even swirls on your mom's quilt. did you use a template or other guide or is your freehand work just THAT good?

either way, it's a lovely quilt.

I like the look of the quilt with Brown centers! Love your moms too - she will be happy. You get extra Daughter brownie points for that *grin*

The strings are especially pleasing to me, but the swirls quilting pattern on the second is also mighty fine, as well as the quilt. Great job, all 'round!

Love both of those. The Baptist fan really does add to the strip quilts, I think. What's the pattern you used for your mom's?

Love the quilting on both of your quilts.
