I'm sure you're all getting tired of my Kona Challenge, but I did get it all finished a few days ago, and this morning I managed to get a few pictures taken.
I am very happy with how it has turned out, and am very pleased that I'm keeping this one. I like the back as much as the front, too!
The quilting is decidedly different from what I've been doing lately - all done with my walking foot, and in a somewhat overlapping pattern - not a curve, curl, or feather to be seen!
Somehow, none of these seemed to fit this design. It was a bit of a challenge given the size and all the turning, and being so used to FMQing, but I think it was well worth it. I've also got plans in the works for another version of it, but that will wait until later in the summer, once I've finished a wedding quilt that is due at the end of August.
