Aunt Molly Strikes again!

Dear old Aunt Molly has given me another 3 quilts to do for her.

I've just finished the first one.
In a previous post, I explained how she was 90 years old and
 still quilting strong, her specialty being scrap quilts.

Well, here is another fine example of her work.

She always uses a fluffy poly batting, so the less quilting the better.  Quilting "simple" is sometimes more work and takes longer than an all-over design, at least in this case, as I had a fair amount of threads to bury, with each circle made. 

But I always enjoy working on her quilts, recognizing some fabrics I gave her and wondering where she got the others!

I tried something alittle different in the borders, having
been inspired by Donna, a fellow longarmer, and I love
the way it turned out, and it was very easy to accomplish. 

I'll be doing more of this in the future for sure!

Using your Circle Lord!! Good for you! Yeah, the stops and starts can get annoying, but the end result is worth it. Donna
