Hand Quilting & a Finish

 Good progress is being made hand quilting this top during the holiday break. 
Pattern is La Passacaglia from Willyne Hammerstein's 1st book Millefiori Quilts
Here's a shot from the back
Up closer
  I'm enjoying revisiting the fabrics used in each rosette as I quilt them

 Sometimes the fabric pattern dictates how that rosette will be quilted
 I'm about two thirds of the way done so far & am determined not to start anything else until it's complete.

Last month I finally finished a WIP that has been on the back boiler since 2010!
Tessellations BOM pattern by Australian designer Brigitte Giblin
I really didn't like the border fabric below that was provided so the blocks remained unframed until I came up with a different plan
Original border fabric that was provided - used some for the back

Wishing you all a Happy & Healthy 2016 full of quilty possibilities :)
