No 15 on my rather long list .......

is now finished!!  I am talking about my list of projects for the Finish Along Q4 over at On the Windy Side.
 
This was one of several pieced tops I picked up from a local Project Linus co-ordinator and offered to quilt on my longarm.  I have just got these hooks put up on an outside wall and, in between heavy rain showers, I managed to get some pictures.  The wind was really gusting but you can't really tell in this little sheltered spot in our garden -  very happy about that!

 
I wasn't sure what pattern to do.  I have recently bought some stencils and had a good idea for the non-cat blocks but then couldn't figure out what to do in the cats .....

 
In the end I decided to do a daisy, leaf and swirl pattern all over the quilt ....

 
I have seen this pattern as a pantograph but I free handed this ....

 
This is the first time I have used cruise setting on my HQ Avante for a full quilt and it worked like a dream ....

 
I am very happy with the evenness of the quilting for it being eyeballed!!

 
Hopefully this quilt will bring some much needed comfort to some child who needs it most. x

  7. It's a lovely quilt, but what really impresses me is that you have hooks in the side of your house for hanging quilts to take the pictures-genius!

  8. Great job with the quilting here. First time on cruise? That's all I've ever used. I'm working to turn off the stitch regulator but no where near ready for that!
