    I made this quilt top sometime in 2006. I posted it here shortly after I joined in 2007. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-435-1.htm
    I finally decided the top had "aged" enough to be ready to quilt. I machine quilted overlapping waves across from side to side. The quilting really doesn't show much on the front and it's an interesting pattern on the back. The back is red on red and the quilting won't photograph well enough to post. Just use your imagination.
    The pattern is

    Big Blossom Trio by Diane Weber ... Sew Biz
    Published by Make It Easy sewing & crafts.
    A Quilt Woman.com Company

    As I said earlier - it's an older pattern - 5 years, at least, since I purchased it.

    We lost our cat, Kimchee, about a year and a half ago. He was about 17 years old. We decided it was time to find a new baby. So here's Miss Gracie Ella! Our house is much "bouncier" now!

    Gracie Ella stands out well against the red quilt! What a sweetheart! She is practicing her inspection skills well! And the quilt is gorgeous!
