Rainbow Spikes Finished!

Remember this quilt? It's all finished now. The label sewing on took me just as long to do as the actually quilting I think! It is all ready for me to pass onto my friend now.

I ended up pebble quilting this one up to the edge of the circle that contained the foundation piecing. I stitched in the ditch in matching thread of every second point.

I decided to do it that way instead of all over pebbling like my first one as look what happens when you do that? It sort of bubbles up and becomes a lump! Photographed directly in front you can't tell but from the side..... interesting!

Here they are both together. The one on the left is done in Kona Bone I think. The one on the right is in Micheal Millers Dumb Dots, white dots on a white background. Subtle. My sister sent me 6 meters of this last year, I'm working my way through it slowly, it's my favorite white tone on tone.
