Back to Quilting after the Holidays

I just finished this customer quilt. The fabrics are shades of orange and purples. Lovely colors.
One block wonder quilts have so many seams and are usually very busy in appearance, so simple edge to edge designs seem to work out best.
I used my trusty Circle Lord Swirls template boards on this beautiful top made by Cora.

I quilted the swirls with Superior Lava "Pompeii"

An orange, green and purple variegated thread with Fil-Tec magnetic pre wound  "Rust" in the bobbin. The batting is Legacy 80/20. I'm finding the Legacy batting seems to have a warmer feeling then my once upon a time favorite Hobbs 80/20.
