Sampler Quilt finished

This baby took longer than I had anticipated.

Part of that was learning curve with the IQ.

This is the first custom quilt I've done using just about all computer. The s.i.d. and straight lines were hand guided, and a wee bit of echoing in the centre medallion was also hand guided. I tried to set up the IQ to do the echo but that was going to take me another two hours so I gave up and did it by hand.
The patterns are from the Sierra collection by One Song Needle Arts.

The narrow border teardrop design comes included with the IQ. Get the camera strap out of the photo, dummy.

As you can see, there is lots of s.i.d. and straight line quilting.
And a cute little surprise in each of the four corners.
