i finally finished it! whoot whoot

WHOOT WHOOT I finally finished it ... about 13 months in the making ... started on the day of our big solar eclipse in august 2017
 all freezer paper templates and hand appliqué which is why it took 13 months to finish ... i started this totally on a whim ... i have always had a medallion quilt on my mind and while watching 
TV footage of the solar eclipse i spontaneously got up took some background fabric from my stash and drew some lines out from .the centre ... made a centre circle & some leaf shaped templates ... and it grew from there  ... totally the way to work go with your gut

 close up detail ... lots of pebbles and then swirls and pearls ... love the look but it took many hours of quilting to do ... much easier using my APQS George with that 20" throat


hard to get good photos as the rain clouds rolled in and rain started spitting

pebbles then swirls &pearls followed by crosshatch FMQ ... those crescent moons were hanging in the sky over California when we drove through the Sierra mountains last year ... my horses are always imagined flying over the earth

Lovely Quilt and outcome. My all time favorite way to create!!! by the seat of my pants and the path the muse chooses. No starting or finishing plan! Just CREATE.
