Balls of string?

Couldn't sleep so I quilted a Twisted Happy Block top pieced by Deborah. I thought the double loopy meander kind of looked like balls of string which would be appropriate for this top where all the centers are different cat fabrics.

I like that quilting pattern. Did you free motion it or is there a panto? I don't do very well with pantos so I'd probably FM it anyway.

Ooooh, I like that, it looks fun and *quick* :o)

cute variation. I do a background fill similar to that...only on a much smaller scale.

You could also use it for bubbles.

I'm sure the "twisted cats" are enjoying their curly strings! The quilting is awesome.

Mary, Just wanted to say I thought of you all day yesterday (Tues.) and hope you are having a Happy Brithday! ;) I know you enjoyed your cisit at the spa... too bad we couldn't all meet at one of these for a girls day out together and chat about quilt ideas while we had our pedicures and massages :)

Love from Texas!
