August Goal...complete!

My August Lovely Year of Finishes goal was to get my "LOVE" quilt quilted. 
So far, this is probably the quilt that I put the most time thinking and planning how I was going to quilt it--I just couldn't decide, and some of the things I wanted to do, I didn't feel like I could actually accomplish.

What I ended up doing:
--1/4" spaced straight line quilting in the letters; pebble quilting around the letters, and then "stripes" in a diamond around the center section. The stripes are alternately filled with wavy lines and circles.

I am happy with how the patchwork is still the main focus of the quilt--that was my main concern, making sure the quilting didn't distract from the piecing. I'm looking forward to getting this bound so I can wash it...hide some of the not as great stitches!


  1. Beautiful! Love your LOVE quilt ;-)

  2. It's gorgeous. Congrats on the finish.

  3. A really great quilt, and I LOVE it!

  4. This is great. All the planning turned out perfectly

  5. Wonderful! That's a LOT of quilting, and it's evident that you really had a fun time planning everything out. And to have it part of your Lovely Year of Finishes--well, that must feel great. I also had some goals, but seem to be slipping behind in them. I need to follow your example and get back on track.

    Again, it's a really lovely quilt!
