I tried numerous arrangements for this quilt, but eventually decided on random. I like the way it turned out. The binding is a diagonally printed black and white stripe and I used a bright floral vintage sheet for the back.
The Jilted Quilt, rents time on her wonderful long arm machine. She donated the time for me to quilt this charity quilt and it was so much fun to learn and play with the long arm. Thanks, Angela!
Long arm quilting was very relaxing. It was so easy to get into "the zone" and just go with it. Next time, I think I'll take my headphones and quilt to music. I was disappointed when I finished. I wanted to keep going! (I just have to add that Ara Jane went over the top with those gorgeous pink hexies. See a close-up at flickr.)
So, a big thank you to the do. Good Stitches "Love" ladies. I'll get this quilt packed up and shipped to Wrap Them in Love right away.
