Anita's quilts and quilting

A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.

Next quilt is finished

It took some more stand and stare time but I figured out how to quilt it. Now that it’s done, I like the quilting even more.

The overall look of the piecing is like floating squares so I did more floating squares with the quilting. Just to make it more interesting I added some angles too.

 Every now and then I added a circle for more interest and to break up the monotony of all angles.
On the border I did alternating lines to give the impression of squares.
Here’s a view from the back to show the look of the quilting. What do you think? Does it work?

I see the friends are back on all the blogs. At first I thought I had done something to make everyone disappear from my blog. Then I noticed the friends were gone on all the blogs I visit. I figured it had to be something blogger was doing so I stopped trying to fix it.

    Before you quilted it, I was having trouble with the top, it seemed pretty disconnected. But now it flows as groups of floating squares. The circles add interest, too. This is a good example of the difference the right quilting can make in the overall design.
