Another one bites the dust and should be bound by now. This one is another raffle quilt for the Arts Council., although I haven't shown you pictures of the first one yet. Slack. This is all freehand except for some rule work to create the curves and such in the blocks and outer borders.
I've really great help - I couldn't do what I do without them.
The thread used was Signature rust in the elongated hexagons, Aurifil black in the blocks and borders and Aurilux gold in the stars. I would have liked to have used Aurifil rust, however I didn't have any yet and I'm still using some Signature. Why am I changing? I do like Signature, however I like Aurifil better. Signature is a robust thread that is somewhat stiffer than Aurifil and doesn't sit as nicely in the fabric as Aurifil. My APQS handles it really well.
The back looks good too.

This is spectacular and totally inspiring! I loved the shot of the back of the quilt where you can really see the quilting stitches...amazing! I have a similar quilt top to finish and I am going to try something similar.

Wow, Love the quilting. I'm investigating quilting machines and hope to get one soon. How do you like your machine? Most everyone around here have gammills but i'm looking at others too.
