Finish line on Urban Planning!!! and a Lobstah update...

 And there it is.  Quilted, face binded, and hung up for photos.  I am thrilled with how it has turned out.  Colorful, happy, and very, very textured.


I used Aurifil thread for the most part - 28 weight.  I love the detail that provides.

I got pretty good at the pebbles technique.  I use a Sweet 16 sit down Handiquilter for my quilting but no rulers.  All of my straight lines....are not that straight but I like the organic look.

I used straight lines on the streets, pebbles in the green areas, kind of loopy zigzags on the concrete areas, and straight lines on the buildings.  



My circles (I think they are parks in Ostermalm) weren't perfect....after all the quilting they kind of got a little wonky but still, overall, I am pleased with them.

Feels good to be finished.  Looking forward to my next Virginia Beach Modern Quilt Guild Meeting to get some quilt love on this one!

What have you finished lately?

And a p.s.   The Lobstah is quilting up very nicely....

Tons of matchstick quilting to hold that lobster down...

I'm linking up this week with all the Linky parties listed in my sidebar.  I just found a new one - Stitch ALL the Things...  Check it out!
