This is the other quilt I made for the mystery half-nighter. When the quilting on the yellow one went haywire I realised it was going to take forever to get it unpicked. So I made this one. It is exactly the same pattern as the yellow on, but without the applique. It was sitting around waiting for me to decide what I was going to quilt in the zig zag part. I had already quilted a cable in the blue parts and I had the binding sewn on as well, so it's a bit of a cheat. There wasn't much to do to get it finished. Funny how some things need only a little work to be finished but I leave them sitting around gathering protective dust coatings.
I decided to do spirals since I had been doing lots on the yellow quilt. This closeup photo is heaps better quality because my son was around to show me how to put the camera into super closeup mode. I wish I had known how to do that when Frances quilted her safety pin onto her bag. I would have take a much better photo of a quilting miracle!!
So that is quilt number 2 finished for 2007.
