My quilt Honeymoon in Paris is back from the quilter, bound, and labeled. Here’s a look at the front . . .

Honeymoon in Paris
was quilted by longarmer Debbie Scroggy of All Quilted, LLC. I saw samples of Debbie’s work at a recent Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting and decided to give her a try. I’m so happy I did! She offers a very fast turnaround time and does beautiful work.

I wanted a spacious airy edge-to-edge design for this quilt. Debbie gave me lots of options. As soon as I spotted the fleur-de-lis element in this quilting design, I knew that was what I wanted. Here’s a close-up of the quilting:

See the Fleur-de-Lis?

Honeymoon in Paris
gets its name from the Paris-themed fabric (two prints on the front and the Eiffel tower on the back) and the double wedding ring block design. The fleur-de-lis motif in the quilting adds a bit more French flavor.

The pattern is Metro Rings by of Sew Kind of Wonderful. I really enjoyed making this quilt, which may be my last finish of 2013. The best thing about finishing a quilt? Starting a new one!

    Another quilt finished! Way to go! The quilt looks very nice, great choice on the quilting. Can you say more about your binding? It looks black on the back and seems to match all your colors on the front. Inquiring minds want to know more.
