I got it finished...& Happy 4th!

I got the quilting on this quilt finished this morning...I like the way this panto interlocks for an allover effect. The blocks for this quilt were won in a block lotto giveaway I hosted last year for the people coming to my monthly classes at the store. We used stripes to look like threads. I thought they turned out so cute that I want to make a quilt like this too.
The lady who won put them together and wanted me to quilt it for her.
Here is the back. Now what should I do?

Don't forget to stop over at Sewmeows for her great birthday giveaway. She is adding something every day. There is kitty fabric......

Jean I just saw this pattern at a quilt shop and did not buy it.
I love it. My hands were full with other things and I wanted to be cautious with my spending. One of the bloggers on my side bar has a kit she is wanting to give away.Check out Quilthollow.

I made a wallhanging with stripey fabric for thread back in the late 1980's and I always wanted to do another larger quilt. thanks for the reminder. Now I have about 100 more stripe fabrics than I did back then so I can have every color thread imaginable.

Love these blocks, Jean. The striped fabric is such a logical idea. Great quilting.
