Summer Sun quilted

Catherine Martin brought my Summer Sun quilt back to me at our Bee "stitch-in" today. There she is on the right, while we try to hold up this queen sized quilt.

It's just like I wanted it, only even better because she added some flames in the rays coming from the sun. All the quilting lines come out from the sun, which required her to do some hard thinking to plan how to do that on her Gammill.
She tried yellow thread, but thought that the orange/red showed up better. I'm happy with that.
And she used tight flames in the sun itself to fasten down the edges.

I am so happy with the whole thing!

Thank you Catherine! I hope to get it bound tomorrow, and then we can sleep under it for the rest of the summer.

Amazing! I love that you took a pretty basic pattern and made it your own, in dramatic fashion :) The quilting takes it to a whole new level!

It turned out just gorgeous! The quilting is terrific. I love the flames around the sun. Seemed like that quilt was finished in no time.

With a quilt like that I might find a way to hate summer a bit less. It is very nice.
