Metro rings finished!

I have been quilting this 100 x 106 inch monster for months!  Finally finished yesterday.  Wool batting and quilted on my Pfaff Powerquilter.  Whew, now I can start a new project, right?

Lots of feathers and curved cross-hatching.

The back fabric is that same dark turquoise for the front background.  My camera changed the color for some reason.  But here is the stitching on the back.

I used Glide thread on the front and Magna glide on the back.  I think in retrospect, I might use bottom line in the bobbin in the future on projects like this.  


  1. Your quilt is beautiful! The quilting looks so good and fits the design of the quilt perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing this on MCM! I love that bold blue, so striking!

  2. Oh wow! Your quilting looks amazing! It must feel so good to have finished it!

  3. Hello Karen,

    Isn't it weird how cameras change the colours sometimes?

    The quilting is fabulous. Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks - your quilt is this week's featured project!

    Love, Muv

  4. Super impressed and totally proud to know that, at some point, this will be on my bed. Beautiful work, Karen, and a huge thanks to my mom, Nancy Troyer for making this "monster". It was a labor of love.

  5. Your choice of quilting motifs is perfect to accentuate this quilt. Even though your camera was being wacky, I appreciate it, because it makes your awesome quilting really shows up in the picture. Thanks for sharing this beauty.
