    Hummingbird quilt finally finished

    I have been working on this hummingbird quilt for about a year. I gave it to my 82 year old mother in law for Christmas. She loves hummingbirds and has feeders on her porch and pinwheels in her flower pots, so I just had to have pinwheels in the quilt. I designed this as I went and it sure was a math challenge to get everything to fit. I used minky on the back to make it nice and soft for her. The hummingbird and all the flowers and vines in the center medallion are hand appliqued. I quilted it with a pantograph, but I did the medallion using free motion quilting - my first attempt at free motion. I wished I had tried free motion quilting before trying it on this quilt, but I ran out of time... I finished it Christmas eve. Thanks for looking,

    so pretty! I hope I am that successful with free motion quilting on my first attempt. Spectacular. (I love hummingbirds and pinwheels too...just saying...LOL)
