Spring Wheels Quilt Completed!

Welcome Spring Wheels :)

Reminds me of warm spring days with a slight breeze in the air:

This is the newest addition to the studio. I had a blast making it. I love all the different colors and how they all combined together to create different wheels:

The back repeats the spring wheels:

Don't you just love that pretty and playful Starling fabric? There's some in the front and the back of this quilt - adding a whimsical touch:

Binding is from the Peaceful Planet line from Studio E:

This is quilt #1 of 2 Spring Wheels.  For this one I decided to use a free form quilting style.  It adds a whimsical feel to the quilt and make each of the part of the quilt flow into the other.  I love how it adds a consistent texture to the whole quilt.  I'm working on quilt #2 now - it has more of a structured straight-line quilting style.  I can't wait to see how the two differs once it's quilted :).  I'll share #2 as soon as it's done.  For now I am enjoying looking at #1.
