Quilty Sneak Peak

Seven large bobbins and two spools of white Isacord thread, and it is quilted. I free motion quilted meandering hooks. 
I have always wanted to do a swirly pattern, and now I finally got it...I'll call it meandering hooks. Something clicked this time around, and I'm not sure what changed.
I had to rip out about 1000 stitches, twice. Serves me right for not checking the underside of the quilt when I adjust the tension. I was so mad the second time that happened.
But all the ripping was worth it. I'm so happy, and I'm ready to bind it all together. Almost done.

So, finishing this quilt is my October goal for ALYoF. Not too hard considering I'm 90% done. My goals for FAL Q4 (Wow! Is it the last quarter already?!) is also to finish this. Also, I want to make two lap-size quilts for some wonderful people in my life. I'm thinking an abacus design and a large star design. After two big quilts, I'm yearning to make something smaller and simpler to gift.

Next week, I will be busy writing the pattern for this quilt. I love pattern writing. It's fun to have the quilt design simplified into manageable pieces. I get to play with shapes in Illustrator too. It's like being a kid again. I'm nuts!
