Forsyth Quilters and Piecers Raffle Quilt

This year the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild asked me to quilt their raffle quilt! What an honor! I was very excited. It was a beautiful quilt with sort of fractured blocks and an applique border. The fractured blocks were a challenge. Hm, normally I would quilt some motif on the blocks and then move on to the border, but these blocks weren't well defined. Edge to edge would be no problem, but custom? What to do?! I  hung it up on my washing line to get a better look from far away.

I decided to go with concentric circles with a swirly pebbled filling. Doesn't it look like stained glass from underneath the frame?

The quilt show is coming up in May and this quilt is up for grabs. Come out to the show for a great time and a chance to win this beautiful quilt! Here's the details:
