The last bud on my passion flower vine bloomed last week. But the corkscrew tendrils and leaves are still twining along the railing so I hung my finished quilt alongside and took this photo.

Machine pieced and Quilted; Hand-dyes and commercial fabrics
Piecing the last segments of the circle and seeing everything lie flat was so sweet. Until that moment I wasn't certain my design would work. I used a walking foot to quilt both straight lines and curves. Because the finished quilt is 20" square it was pure pleasure to manipulate under the arm of my machine. I faced the quilt using Robin's "hidden binding" directions. It is the perfect finish for art quilts.
I love waking up in the morning knowing that the only thing I HAVE to do is walk the dog. Tomorrow is one of those days. And I have big plans.
Second, I am going to try and catch up with the civil war quilt block group. I have 5 to do.
Then I think I will take a deep breathe ( the bronchitis is finally breaking up) and revel in feeling good.
Wish me luck.
