YIKES!!! Wow, this is gorgeous! Don't know if you planned it out so the blue/gray parts fell into their own segments or not, but it sure worked out well. Marvelous off center design - spirals are very cool - and love how the straight background lines aren't all the same direction. You must be having a ball!

Awesome quilting. It's crazy how good you are with that thing already. Thank you for being nice to feral cats. They have a tough life and even little things like a napping shelf ease it a bit. I'm involved in the feral cat rescue here in town and have a sweet feral at home that I caught in the back lot a couple years ago.

Really liking these non-symmetrically quilted pieces. Makes you look at the entire surface cause you don't know what's next, unlike traditional same-pattern-all-over quilts. The big color blocks are quite Amish but the quilting so isn't. Very cool!

Love the trapunto effect. Did you use thick batting? You're quite good with that thing already, the quilting looks lovely in the pics. The crescent moon shapes in those 3 circles is cool. Very nice art quilt. Still need to send you pics of my tops. Will do this weekend hopefully.

Wow, looks very cool as is. Mariner's Compass-ish, a pattern I love. Looks like you can do all sorts of neat stuff with that thing. I've never used one and don't have the urge but it would be handy to quilt all these tops I still have lying around from 20 years ago. Or maybe they just need to go to Goodwill. I'll be interested to see the final product.

Amazing you could find room for that big old thing in your little bitty house. But where there's a will, there's a way, right? I've never used one but that's the only way I'd ever try to quilt a large quilt. Way too much hassle on a regular machine and my patience gives out real quick. Amazing work those textile artists are doing. Almost gives me the itch to get my fabric out...

Love the last one! As you said, the unplanned leftovers are often the best. That happens to me a lot with gelli plate ghost prints. That 3rd pic is neat too, reminds me of the moss agates we used to find along the lake when I was a kid.

Love the little spiky bits. They remind me of ice crystals on a window pane. Very pretty fabric. I always enjoyed dyeing, the suspense of unfolding the fabric to see what had happened, cause it was always a surprise.
