template twirls top

I have a new  top ready for the "to be quilted" closet. This was an experiment using the creative grids crazy six template. I really like the scrappy twirls from the black. The border was an extra border I had made for another quilt and didn't use. It was great to find a home for it on this quilt

The colorful parts are crumbs from my string and crumbs bin. There is so much fun in such tiny pieces.
It is just like doodling with fabric and any color works.

I spy a bear

and a selvage

and candy corns

I just love this kind of scrappy quilt. I don't know when I will get to this. At this point, I have over 20 tops that I need to quilt. And yet, when I decide to take a turn on the longarm, I can't decide which one to quilt. I think I am going to let a random number generator decide next time. LOL

I started this quilt in 2018 and I called it template twirls.
