Well, I made it. Just barely under the wire---I'm actually going to post what's on the design wall before midnight!--on Monday. I finished the String Quilt top this past week and quilted it on the long arm. I've never attempted Dawn Ramirez Dwirling technique, and thought this would be a good quilt to test it out.
It took me about 4 hours and 9 bobbins of Perma Core thread. The quilt is 85" x 72" and it is heavy feeling, even though I have Legacy batting in it. Legacy 80/20 is not quite as thick feeling as Hobbs 80/20. Yet the quilting show up well.
This is the back.

I can see the appeal of Dwirling, especially for scrappy quilts like this one.
Even though it's not very noticible I did add more log cabin diamonds to the wall hanging. I've added a flannel tie dye quilt top to the design wall this week. It's a UFO that has been stored away for years. It's time to get it finished---- Jana, just put on your sunglasses! (grin)
