Another Top Quilted!

Today I'm giving a Whoop! Whoop! along with Sarah and a bunch of others at: http://www.confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/search/label/whoop-whoop                                http //richardquilts.blogspot.com/search/label/LAFF and because yesterday, with a NCIS marathon on in the background, I was able to hang out in my studio and practice my quilting.  I worked on this pantograph for this  Project Linus Quilt.  (I'm learning how to "nest" my patterns)

I chose a pantograph that would mimic the hot air balloon fabric and  
I used a variegated rainbow top thread to go with all the bright primary colors.

I used a plain orange thread in the bobbin. It was so much fun!

I only quilt for Project Linus so it's always fun to return the quilts to see the ladies reactions! We all ooohhh and aughhh before passing the quilt on to the next person for binding.(Aren't we quilters funny!!!We can always count on each other to see the best in everything!) I think this quilt's bright colors and whimsical look are sure to make a child smile! 
Hey! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my work. Don't forget to return and Link-Up Sunday to not only get a look at my Fat Quarter storage system but share your Fat Quarter storage as well!!
