As I mentioned in my last post, this quilt is a remake of my original Folk Dance quilt, and I'm keeping this one as a class sample, as well as for trunk shows (pattern available HERE and HERE).
I thought a dense, allover flower quilting motif would compliment the Anna Maria Horner fabrics nicely, and I have to say- I am as proud of this quilting as any I've ever done. I even had a quilty friend ask if I had bought a longarm machine. Nope- all quilted on my domestic BERNINA, but I take that as a huge compliment!
Even though I used 25 different prints in this quilt, I am saving the remainder of these fat quarters for a king size quilt for my bed. I did use the smallest leftover pieces on the backing though, and it adds just a little bit of flair.
This quilt has a full rainbow of color, so I could have chosen almost any color binding. This Kona Oasis was already in my stash, and I love how it frames the twirling skirt blocks, so it was a no-brainer.

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
