Carol's Quilt

This quilt made by Carol is from the Carol Hopkins pattern Abigail's Gowns. Very cute quilt and I was in the mood for a little custom, so today I spent an hour quilting, then an hour working on a jizsaw puzzle, and then an hour on hand stitching the facing on a antique Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that belongs to Betty Frank. Maybe I have a bit of A-D-D.

The pieced blocks have continuous curves with a loop in the flying geese blocks. On the solid blocks I drew diagonal lines from corner to corner and then quilted 3 loops in each section. It makes a great design and I was able to do a row of the setting triangles, one row of pieced blocks and 1/2 of a solid row with one start and stop. (Unless, of course, I run out of bobbin thread, darn it!)

And the back:
