Lisa's Quilt

I finished Lisa's quilt today and love how it turned out!  

 I feel like it took me longer than it should have.  I guess dealing with a leaky drain pipe and loosing about 10" of quilting space because of a constantly growing tummy will do it.

I really struggled at first about leaving some open spaces un-quilted in the motif, but I am really pleased I did, now it's all done. 

I used double batting.  Warm and white on the bottom and Hobbs on top.  Lisa always does a beautiful job with her piecing and quilts!

I started to take pictures on how I made the motif block, but after, decided it was going to be to many pictures....so I had my daughter video tape me quilting it up along with the feather ring.

...now for the video...

Okay...it's a really horrible video.  Very shaky and sea sick like...bless her heart and not a great video camera...but you get the idea of how I do it.  I've gone back and forth on whether I should put it up on my other blog or not.....it's really non-professional!!  ...but if enough of you want to see it, I suppose I can post it.  ;o)

Would love to know your thought on this!

Love how the cross blocks turned out! Beautiful! I can't imagine how hard it is to quilt pregnant. I was always running into the sink trying to do dishes.

Your quilting looks lovely. I was wondering why you mix the two batts. Why not use two of the same?
