It has been a a busy year of quilting and sometimes it is fun to look back at what I was doing a year ago.  On the longarm quilting frame was this Block of the Month pattern, 'Pansy Park' quilt by Thimbleberries and made by Sarah.  It was quite a special quilt as many of the fabrics seemed like they were design specifically for the quilt.

It was a very large quilt, measuring 91" x 111" and I custom quilted it, which involved stitching in the ditch and using a range of free motion designs, digital patterns and ruler work to fill each section.

The quilt has eight different borders and twelve different blocks and when planning what to do, I had to work how I would stitch each one before I could put it on the frame.  This design stage can be quite time consuming!  Once it was off the frame and in the sunlight, it was the first chance to see the different textures of the quilting.Certainly a quilt for use on a cold day like today.
