The last stitch

I love quilting HeartStrings tops sent to me by Deborah to finish and donate. This was her latest one...she called it Surf and Sand and it's quilted with the swirling/dwirling design that I like so much from the Pajama Quilter DVD.

I know I just showed you a quilt with this design but this one was quilted in November and the other one was quilted in January....it just so happened that the bindings were being finished at the same time.

Here's a low light photo that shows the quilting a little better.
Can you believe with all these finishes, I only have one more binding to do and that's on the one I quilted the other night. I never did get another one loaded but that will be one of my Monday tasks.

I love the colors in Surf and Sand! It must be interesting seeing all the different fabrics on those quilts.

That's a beautiful quilt! The two-color ones are really striking, and that one has such a soft look to it. The quilting pattern really is perfect.

I love the swirling design of your quilt too. It pleasantly contrast with the top-design.

Isn't it amazing how many quilts made from the same pattern look so different in changing colours?
Your work of course is great and you must be sleeping less and less these days. I tell you girl, it's because of winter not giving us enough sunshine.
Keep up the great work!

That's very pretty! I'm wondering if that was done with a jelly roll; I'll have to experiment :) And YOU are a machine, girl.
