Food Wine and Beer

The quilt for Tara and Missy is done! I tried out a curved edge and bias binding, and finished it by machine, which saved mucho time, and for a quilt that will not be hung in a show, turns out to be a fine option. It was fun making the food and wine blocks and adding the bubbling circles. The quilting, done in bright variegated thread, turned circles into flowers and suns, with feathers wandering across blocks of oranges, beer steins or mushrooms, and a dark blue thread filling in the background. A thank you to Heather for the idea of a curvy edge which not only harmonized with the circles, but pulled the quilt together in a whimsical way.
