Plaza del Sol

Here's the finished version of Plaza del Sol. This is an original design that was inspired by a plaza in Mexico. The blocks were made by the members of the 2009 Faithful Circle E Quilters. Of course, it took me a while to get back to the blocks and finish them. As always, I learned some more about long arm quilting. You can't see it here but I ripped out a whole bunch on the little turquoise border. This attempt at a ribbon looks much better than the original.
And, my loopy "l"s -- ugh... the pieces were too wide to make decent loops. Although every once in a while I see a great one rather than a lumpy one! Something to continue practicing on!

Today's Plans --
Hair cut... yeah!
Finish quilting Heidi's pineapple quilt -- or at least as far as I can get on it.
Maybe work on a string quilt
Antiques Roadshow -- so glad the final two isn't on during Roadshow.

Have a quilty day everyone!
