Candy Stripes Finished!

I have finished sewing the label on the Candy Stripes quilt. Yahh!

I am happy how the wavey line quilting turned out. It's not perfect, but not bad for a first effort.

It was actually a quick way to quilt, as all the start and ending points where over in the wadding where they will get trimmed off, so no loose threads to sew in!

The backing fabric is pretty and by adding a peiced row in I managed to save a little strip for the stash.

Another close up of the quilting. It's all packaged up now and ready to post on the way up to do the school pick up this afternoon.

Wow, Helen, nice! And when I first looked at it, I was thinking, did she send this off to be quilted? You rock!

I really, really like the wavy line quilting. I will have to try this! And I love the idea of putting a strip down the backing. Visually very interesting! I will have to try this too, LOL!

I love the wibbly-wobblyness of the lines and the crazy quilting that yet makes sense. Gorgeous! Cherrie

beautiful helen! i also like quilting from one side to the other both for no thread ends and also easier not to have to rotate the quilt a million times. i'll have to try our wavy.
