Always satisfying to finish a project, but I was sad to see this one end. I had LOTS of fun with the quilting on this one, and I also like how it looks on the back.
As my friend pointed out, it's become a sampler of free-motion quilting as well. Before I go any further, I want to link to Leah Day's wonderful resource The Free Motion Quilting Project : 365+ designs - this site provided some great quilting ideas when I got stuck. Tune in each week for FMQ Fridays for inspiration from her and others.

I incorporated the floral pattern into the quilting design.
This is my next quilting project - last shown HERE
- of course I have to sash it and turn it into a quilt top first!
