As good as the front looks, I think the back is just gorgeous! Its hard to see in the photo but the triple ring "flowers" just appear out of nowhere in the midst of the hanging diamonds and I just love the look. I'm glad this quilt isn't going anywhere but on our bed.
Here's the quilt folded on a chair. You can see the four different quilting designs I used: the parallel lines, the cable, the hanging diamonds crosshatching and the triple circle free motion design.
You can see my tutorial for using Marti Mitchel's rotary cutting templates for the Drunkard's Path here.
Special thanks to P at The Way I Sew It: seeing all your free motion design experiments inspired me to have a go with the triple ring/circle design and I'm so glad I did. It took a long time and used a ton of thread but oh, it looks so good! I'm definitely starting to love machine quilting.
I'm linking up to Finished for Friday at Lit and Laundry and Sew and Tell at Amylouwho. Hop on over and see all the wonderful finished this week.
Miri, absolutely gorgeous, well done! The quilting adds so much definition to this quilt. Congratulations on a very nice finish.
This came out so beautiful. The patience you have girl!
It's gorgeous!!! Sometimes using the simplest quilting designs allow the pieced pattern to just shine. And this one does!
Wow, wow, wow! It's so beautiful! Your quilting on it is really wonderful. I'm glad you were inspired...and you have inspired me, in turn, to make a quilt like this! Maybe with that emerald green fabric I recently came into. So how big is it overall? Do you think I could get all the colored blocks cut from just under 2 yards?
Miri, it looks great! You really keep busy!
I love it - it turned out really well!
That's gorgeous! A lot of work though, I know. Thanks for sharing! Sandi

Wow, that quilting job is AMAZING!! The color is so bright and cheerful, what a great quilt!
Very nice! I love how you used simple colors with the more complex block design.
You did an amazing job on the quilting. It is beautiful! And definitely the perfect quilt for Spring!
The quilting is just gorgeous and the fact that the quilt is so bright and cheery with yellow makes it even better!!
