One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017.
I got this pattern from a blog called The Painted Quilt . If you go to her blog and under the free patterns go to "Stopped Me In My Tracks" quilt, you can have the pattern, too.
I did get this one quilted today using the Easy Peasy Baptist Fan pantograph.
Personally, I wish I owned the Circle Lord mechanism that I could attach to my Millenium that would have given me "perfect" arcs, but once I finished the whole quilt, I am pretty pleased with the end results.
I had purchased a big gingham check in yellow and white for the backing.
It's not a perfect match to the front which is done in Kona daffodil and a creamy white, but the whole quilt speaks Spring/Summer, warmth, brightness to me; and here in Michigan with our sub zero weather right now, that sounds really good to me.
Anyways, I am hoping to get the binding attached tomorrow (New Year's Eve), but if I don't....that's ok. The biggest job on this quilt is done and I know I won't wait too long to put that binding on and call this one done. So, it will be my final finish for 2017 or my first finish for 2018. That's a plus either way.
I will be looking forward to putting this one on my bed come warmer weather; but for now, I will enjoy putting that binding on with this quilt on my lap keeping me warm while I am stitching away.

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
