Relay For Life

My friend Judy has just finished her last round of chemo and is back to work, just as peppy and upbeat as ever. She is a member of the Common Threads Quilt Guild and requested 9" pink and white blocks from members to make a quilt for the Relay For Life event. I offered to quilt it for her and she dropped it off Monday evening. Last night I loaded it and did the quilting using a new panto - Button Flower by Keryn Emmerson, PermaCore white thread and Warm & White batting.
Well, here is another panto that I really like. I tend to shy away from those pantographs that crossover quilting lines, because I don't generally do that in free-motion quilting, so I didn't care for the look, but this one - I really Like!
I left Judy a message saying the quilt is finished and can't wait for her to pick it up.

Here's a close-up of her ribbon blocks:

I think the quilting is really nice.I know that we have favorite patterns but, not every quilt would look good with the popcorn pattern that I love. :)
