The Bull's Eye Quilt--She's Finished!

I am happy to say that this quilt is labeled, washed, and dried! I hope you can see the quilting I did in the cream areas. First I used my walking foot and did straight lines through the bull's eye block centers in both directions (with dark brown thread). I used a variegated cream/taupe/tan to quilt freehand circles in the center of the background blocks. It went so well, and I was done in a flash. I love the way the edges of the raw edge applique circles curled up gently after it was washed and dried. What a wonderful and fun quilt to piece!

Neat job Joan, you must be pleased. I like the way it now looks like an antique and it's new!

I love it! The quilting looks great and it definitely looks warm and cuddly! Maybe I'll add it to my list of "want to make!"

It turned out so great! I might add a bulls-eye quilt to my list of future projects, after seeing yours!
