I'm calling this one Love Actually. Kari Ruedisale did a fantastic job for me with custom quilting. It is exactly what I envisioned.
She quilted a motif to fill the center portion of the interlocking ring and a series of loops on each arch of the ring.
And the border is absolutely fantastic, with vertical lines and a wonderful feather making its way around the outer edge.
Love Actually took a while to finish; let's call it slow quilting. Made mostly from prints from the Paris Flea Market line by 3 Sisters, with a background from a newer 3 Sisters line (Printemps?). I used a set of acrylic templates from Marti Michell and highly recommend them. They made the cutting easier and the piecing more accurate than trying to cut with cardboard forms. And I'm thinking of re-using the template set to make another quilt on my bucket list, the orange peel.
In the first photo, you can see the pillow cases I made from the background fabric. I'm planning to make some pillow shams from my remaining Paris Flea Market hoard. But in the meantime, there's a big check mark on my list. What's on your list?
