Finished Another One

I finished the King's Cross that I was making as a graduation gift.  I ended up quilting it with circles.  I like circles, I have since I first started quilting.  Of course in the beginning I did it by hand.  Using a machine is a lot easier and faster, but I do miss hand quilting.  Any way this quilt is now done and ready to be wrapped.

  1. Hi,Talin:-)
    I cannot imagine the 'hand quilting'-that must be more strenuous,than my beading:-),though I knew one woman in NYborg-Denmark,who still does it pretty well,even if she's got a fast machine of the new generation.It's some kind of sentiment and all the work made by hand seems to be more precious.
    Your King's Cross quilt is miraculous.Fantastic setting od figures,wonderful,regular seams and what's most powerful here-the colors:-)I love all green shades-You know it well:-))
    One thing only:I've always been interested in sizes of Your quilts.I think,You should write about it each time You finish one.

  4. My goodness Talin that is just beautiful!!!! How in the world do you quilt circles on the machine??? I did circles of all sizes on a quilt, but they were by hand, and pretty tedious.

  7. So beautiful! I feel like circles would be hard by machine, but I must admit that I haven't ever tried them. Your quilt is wonderful : )

  8. This is gorgeous! Your circles look so perfect - what's your trick? My 8th grade Science teacher told us that only an insane person is able to draw a perfect circle - yet you stitched a bunch of them and you seem quite sane in spite of this!
