Paradise Puzzle - finish

 This project was designed in EQ8.  My purpose was to combine January's Birds of Paradise block and February's  Snowball  block from Natalia Bonner's 2022 quilt along.  I have the workbooks with 12 quilting design each, so I needed a playground to stitch them on.  You will find Natalia's free quilt along   HERE  .

Here is my quilt.  I just started it in January.  It was definitely alot of piecing but accuquilt dies made quick and perfect work for cutting most of my shapes. It looks a bit busy but the fabrics. are lovely and it is so cozy, finishing at 68 x 80.  I made a note that it measured 76 x 80  but either I lost 8 inches in one direction from all the quilting or I measured wrong.

It has 100% cotton batting with Kansas Troubles extra wide backing.  I quilted it on my Janome Versa QP 18 sit down machine with Glide military gold thread and gray Bottom Line thread in the bobbin..

Here are some close-ups of the quilting with rulers and freehand.


This quilt doesnt have a home yet, but I'm saving it for someone's special gift.  In the meantime, I'm happy to join these linky parties.  Be sure to visit them to see what other quilters are sharing.
