Shindig 2013 - The Quilting is Done

We had snow and wind every day this week, so to get a good photo of the full quilt, I had fellow Mountain Jam Circle quilters Alice and Ann hold it up for me when I passed it back to them for binding this morning.



It is not the most flattering photo of either of the two people-subjects, but it was the best one of the quilt.

Here are some closeups of the quilting I managed to take yesterday laying the quilt out on a sheet on the driveway.

 The sun kept appearing and disappearing so there are different exposures.



I used matching threads and each color was treated the same way throughout -

straight lines in the brown,

 

feathers in the red 

  


 and three different swirly-twirly background fills in the cream areas.




This last photo shows the backing fabric.

I just bought that pattern. I want to figure out how to use a gradient with it. I love your quilting!

As ALWAYS, I am impressed with your talent. The backing reminds me of MTC's first clogging dress .... red paisley. I loved it, and I love this quilt. I like the intertwining pattern, your skill at quilting, and the color RED!!!

I'm looking to find this exact pattern! By any chance can you tell me where to locate it or can I purchase it from you?
