Rosemary's Mint Chocolate Swirls



I LOVE this quilt! The combination of greens and the brown batik are stunning. The shape looks wonky in my photo, but actually the quilt is as square as they come. It laid flat and was a dream to quilt. I quilted it with Michelle Wyman's Ribbon Twirl pantograph, Permacore Olive thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting



And the back, which really isn't this bright:

Lucky Rosemary. That quilt was great before, but now it is perfect with your quilting. Love the perfect backing, too.

It is a luscious quilt. Like a chocolate mint cookie....

Ruthie you blow me away with all the quilting you get done. And, don't you work full time also? Yikes girl. I got the first quilt on and off my machine today -- I think it was beginning of April when I last had a quilt on. And, I've got another to go on tomorrow. If I remember I'm going to steal your way of telling batting, panto and thread. It really is helpful to see some of the pantos on a quilt. And, I love Angel Wings probably because it always turns out nice. Thanks for sharing all of these great quilts. B.
