What a fun and exciting challenge! First of all this was a circular quilt so that made loading it on the quilt frame a challenge. I loaded the backing and batting, then pin basted the top, then stitch basted the circumference. After outline stitching all the applique, the fun began. I matched thread color to the fabrics and quilted all the applique and then finished with all the pebble work in the background. DARLING!
