Road testing Orange Lemon and Lime Drunkards Path

The orange, lemon and lime quilt is almost done, but first it has to be road tested.....by the cat. She doesn't look happy here.
I don't have a design wall, I have a design bed, which is why Zali the cat loves it so much.  I tried to make it so that the bright orange quarter circles were distributed evenly, and the greys, where they meet are all different pattern. I nearly succeeded. There is one spot where there are the same pattern, but I'm not going to tell you where.
This quilt is even too big to lie flat on this bed. That is why I have used a QAYG method and  quilted the spirals separately. See my QAYG tutorial here.  I think it is a good trade off, as the back is not as perfect as I would like.

  1. I think it looks great! Remember, if you can't see it when galloping past on a horse then it doesn't count as a mistake ;-)

  2. I just took a look at your Photos. This quilt looks great :-). I have been quilting for ages without a designwall. I too have used the bed og the floor. Lats year I made myself a Little designwall.
    Thank you for leaving a comment in my blog.
