Frolic finished

 I participated in Bonnie Hunters mystery quilt along in 2019 and finished the top months ago.  I sent it to the long arm quilter and good friend but told her I was not in a hurry.  I didn't want to quilt it myself because it is a bit big and the seam intersections are plain lumpy!  I dont recall making a quilt with such lumps before.  But it is a very heavily pieced quilt. I enjoyed making this quilt and using these colours, even though they are not my usual palette.  I mixed in reproductions with moderns and everything in between.
I picked a really nice mottled ink blue for the backing and a lime/grass green thread for quilting. 
I wanted a all over pattern and this gives a lovely movement to the quilt.  I guess it is really a version of baptist fan, which is a bit of a favourite :)  I used the left over backing to bind the quilt and now its in the pile for gifting!
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. Your quilt turned out very pretty, even if not in your favorite colors. No doubt there were lots of intersections to make it a bit lumpy, but maybe the quilter will get those lumps knocked down. ---"Love"

  2. Really pretty, Sue. Lucky person who gets this quilt from your "gifting" pile!

  3. What a beautiful and generous quilt to gift. Someone will be thrilled.

  4. Congratulations on your finished Frolic! It looks great. Mine is still at the "sandwiched" stage, so I need to get stuck into some quilting.

  5. Well done Sue, I would say that it's a good size to finish at, with all those little pieces in it.
