The Bali Flowers for My Wedding Ring is done!

Whew ... it's been a while.  I've had my head down over this quilt for quite a few days.  I love this working from home bit, by the way ... I would work for a while then come to the computer and check e-mail, news sites, quilting sites, etc.  It makes for a comfortable work day!  

Anyway, this is done.  Barb did the piecing and Mindy did the applique.  Isn't it absolutely gorgeous?!!  These two ladies whip out these beautiful quilts like nobody's business.  

This quilt got really playful on me ... I kept looking at the bright batiks and just couldn't do anything too structured on it, except for the melons and the insides of the rings.  The borders became my playground and I had me some fun!  It's interesting to just let my fingers guide the machine and see what happens.  There are plenty of 'goofs' but I won't tell if you won't tell ... but the goofs just let me know that I was concentrating much too hard.  I think this is my venue ... playful quilting.
