    Stained Glass Top Finally Finished

    I finally finished paper piecing and putting this stained glass top together. Just need to add a narrow black border but have to get the fabric when I go to town tomorrow, used all of my black in the blocks. I am so undecided at this point on how to quilt it. I only have a short arm on frame so space is limited. I may have to put the machine on the table and do it that way but to me this top seems to be crying out to be handquilted, decisions, decisions. BTW, the blocks are 14 inches so it is pretty big. Thanks for looking.

    how about just doing some quilting in the white areas. meandering by machine or straight lines coming off each fin to show a direction of the fins whirling direction.

    THAT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. I love the stained glass look and the colors you used really pop out. How proud someone will be to have such an awesome quilt on their bed. Just loved seeing it. Wish I were the proud owner. Good for you to have gotten that done. I think the narrow black border or binding will only enhance it even more. Thanks again for posting this so I could see it.
    I haven't done much quilting for awhile ... this has kept me busy.

    Keep up the good work.
