finally some finished quilts!

Here is another example of my machine quilting with the serpentine stitch on my Bernina 1530. I call this rivulet style. It is really effective when using a variegated thread. I set the stitch at 3-4 width and 4-5 length and use a walking foot. I choose a line, and guide the quilt, varying my path a bit, for 2 or 3 or 4 passes. In some places the paths are far apart, in others they converge into a tight line.
This is my friend Donna Cook's design--the pattern is for sale. I will put you in contact with her if you want one. It is a small quilt, about 20" by 30"--the smallest piece measures 1/4 inch square!
My mom did the binding. She and dad spent a few days here after taking a cruise through the Panama Canal!

Very cool quilt! I would have guessed it was quite a bit bigger than you describe. I like hte quilting, too. My Pfaff doesn't have a smooth curve stitch like that. My cheapo Brother did, and I really liked it for certain applications.

Wow! Gorgeous! Love the pink and brown color combo, and the curvy quilting!
