Frank and Terri Karls on the custom quilting. I love every decision they made and executed in the longarming of this big quilt - 98" x 112". This quilt (which needs a name) is based on The Bachelor from Amy Gerro's book.
The paper-pieced blocks have some light quilting on them, enough to stabilize their position. And once the quilt is bound, I think I will do some simple sashiko in the larger spaces of these complex blocks. When John saw this quilted, his response was that this quilt cannot be given away. I do a bedroom photo once this is complete and see how it looks there. This cold snowy January week is perfect for plowing through my to-do list and listening to 'XRT mourn David Bowie's death.
