Shindig 2015 Raffle Quilt - nearly done

You saw my blocks for the Mountain Jam Circle's 2015 quilt to benefit Shindig on the Green here.  Somehow I separated the mention that Ann and Alice were making blocks, so you might think only one of them did.  In fact, Ann made so many we had more than enough to make an extra quilt.  But that's another story.

Alice and Ann did all the sewing to set the blocks together into a top - I didn't get a photo of that, but I've had the top for several weeks now and finally finished the quilting.  I tried taking photos outside, but it was too close to noon and the quilting didn't show.

I'm posting this next one so you can see the quilting design in the corners.

I like this shot that shows some of the variety of reds and background fabrics - 


This photo shows the backing fabric - the quilting doesn't show there at all.  But it shows nicely on the front.

I really enjoyed quilting this. I was going to do "simple feathered wreaths" but the more I looked at dividing up the space, the more I started filling with more designs.  It's still relatively simple.

Simple? That's rather an understatement! Looks spectacular, Cheryl.
