It feels good to have another quilt-for-hire finished. Hopefully I will be able to deliver it today. This was a fun one, all done in bright Christmas-y colors. I didn't take a picture of the entire quilt, because it was difficult enough to get the quilting to show on the close-ups.
This red poinsettia was quilted on a shiny gold fabric. It was so busy reflecting (despite the lack of flash) that it didn't focus well. But you get the idea...
It took me a long time to come up with something for this long red strip. I finally wrapped it up with a flourish.
And this dotty area - there were four spaces like this - what to fill them with, to keep with the theme?
This was one of those quilts that allowed the quilting to show better on the back. Here is a poinsettia chain. Not half bad, eh?
I've got one last quilt-for-hire awaiting my attention, and then I think I'm done between now and Christmas. I've got two of my own quilts that I fantasize about completing by January 1. Goals are good and all that...
Twirly Balls is finally done!
