Nose to the Grindstone

Since I've been home, I've been quilting almost daily.

This quilt belongs to Nancy and is the first one I've ever done with Minkee backing. I was concerned about how it would stitch out, but when I was done with it, I loved the look and feel. Minkee makes the quilt so soft!!! Nancy said this quilt was a challenge for her as she didn't use bright, seriously, that's what she said!!

Below are a couple of close-ups. I wanted to  make the path continuous, so I did loops (sort of "l's" all the way down. A lot of continuous curve and some fun play with the individual blocks made up the front.

The back...this is almost true to color. It was more of a lime green, and the most beautiful, bright lime green I've ever seen. These pictures are worth clicking on for a closer view.

More quilts coming up!
