Wonky curves??

Surprisingly I've never quilted anything with continuous curves before - I knew these squares would be too challenging at 6 inches to get a smooth curve without using a ruler (and I DON'T like rulers) so I decided I'd just quilt them in a wonky style and not worry about trying to be consistent. I've decided that any quilting I do should just be called Wonky and then I won't stress as much about the inconsistencies!

I wanted this donation quilt to be soft and cuddly so I didn't want a lot of quilting - just enough. Want the instructions for piecing the top? Click the link - Boxed Squares.

And the back:
Look who's enjoying his freedom - happy to be back up on his perch and enjoying the view of these beautiful changing trees.

Looks like Chesty is on top of the world again!

I love your continuous curves, Mary! I've never tried going real "deep" with my curves...but after seeing yours, I may have to give it a try sometime. Great job!
