It is just so fun to admire the secondary shapes that the machine quilting brings out. A flimsy comes to life with thoughtful quilting and sometimes simple quilting proves less can be more.This pattern doesn't seem to lend itself to being a scrappy quilt but it was almost essential for me to put a scrappy border on the top and bottom as to make the overall look more whimsical and "me".
And of course I always always like a scalloped edge. The quilt ended up being sort of a funny size because the symmetry of the pattern lends itself to needing an even number of the horizontal and vertical blocks or lines in the quilt.
Anyway it was great to remake my pattern using different fabrics. A completed project is a joy to look at. Now on to the next . . .
