I have two QOV tops here to quilt before I head off to CO. Friday. I finished number one this evening & pinned on number two & got about one third done when the bobbin ran out so I decided it was time to call it a night. After all it was well after 11 p.m. time to pack it in, right, even for a night owl like me!

My QOV partner in CA, Meredith, is a batik afficiando so most of the tops she sends me to quilt are batiks & this one is no exception but I think she did an exceptional job of design, fussy cutting each of the "compasses". It's very graphic & I think some wounded warrior will love it. I used a light aqua thread & quilted freehand echoed swirls.

Here is the back, it's really a much prettier, brighter aqua- blue but I didn't use the flash [so the quilting would show up] perhaps that's why it looks kind of faded.
Tomorrow, QOV#2!
P.S. Anyone know if ants will mess up a laptop? I have a plague of tiny ants on my desk! DH does too...... I am using those traps that supposedly destroy the whole colony but so far the ants are winning the war, persistent little buggers!

Ros, I love this quilt. Great use of color and the quilting adds a nice motion effect.

Beautiful quilting on a lovely quilt!

I've been having terrible computer problems which finally got solved...except for your blog. I don't know why but I couldn't load your blog and if I could, I couldn't comment. But I think I've solved it! Yeah!

Try sprinkling cloves on your desk-ants don't like the smell! We have polite ants that like to use the front door-I sprinkle cloves and it really helps.

I'm having a 100th post giveaway! I can't believe I've written 100 posts! :)
