Ready for Quilting & a New Project

I'm very pleased with the finished top. Now to pick my machine quilter. My shoulders and the size of the top have decided for me to have someone else quilt this. I want a curvy overall design.

The backing, shown in the lower right corner, is a batik that picks up all the colors and its bright hues are perfect for the back.

It's time for my husband's sister and brother-in-law to get a quilt from me. Bob requested a cozy Patriotic lap quilt.

I found this pattern on The Quilter's Cache, called Independence Quilt.

This quilt has enough variety to hold my interest while fulfilling the request. I already bought a dark blue flannel for the back which is my first choice for a sofa blanket.

It's a lovelty quilt, I think a curvey quilting design would look just the thing. I'm liking the start of your patriotic quilt, you can't beat stars!
