Last 2 seams....

Remember this one?  I just had 2 seams left to sew so I finally did it yesterday.  Now I have the big job of pressing the seams with all of the bumps and lumps caused by the ends of the seams in the blocks. 

The Comcast guy was here yesterday at 10:07 a.m. and gone by 10:35 and I have a new modem.  I think my Internet is faster now, but maybe it's just my imagination.  My desktop computer is the same age as the old modem, almost 8 years old but I have a newer laptop and router so I should be set for a few years.

It looks fantastic! This is one of my favorite patterns as I love the secondary design that it forms. Wonderful finish. So glad that Comcast finally made it and that you have super fast speed too!

Computer problems are frustrating. The quilt is really attractive. Chris

This quilt is so perfect, so fascinating, so vivid.

Why, oh why, do we put off finishing those last three seams? I've been doing the same with UFOs, and it really feels good! Great quilt!

Karen said...

Wanda, this quilt looks so cool. It's a great pattern and your choices are perfect. So glad your computer problems seem to be behind you.

Paula said...

Love this quilt too!!! Hmmm, there's a pattern emerging. I love all of the quilts you share! :)

And, yay for a new modem and internet.

A beautiful quilt Wanda! Computer problems are so frustrating. I am glad you got your new modem. I had a computer guy here last night and he couldn't help to get my new computer to do what I want it to. Another guy is coming today. I hope he can do something.

Hi Wanda,
Wow, your winding ways quilt looks fantastic! And clicking on the picture really shows the circle illusion the best.

I am amazed you got 8 years from your computer. Mine seem to fry (motor burn out) or the mother board kicks the bucket at about 5 years, sometimes less. And the mother board costs more than a new computer, so the cycle repeats....

The Winding Ways is amazing! Gorgeous.

It IS a beautiful quilt. Will it grow borders? I always like the fabrics you include in your quilts. The just play together so nicely!

LynCC said...

Oh. Oh. Oh! That is amazing. Wonderful eye candy for my breakfast break. :D

It is amazing what those guys can do. Our DVR went out and they fixed it from who knows where over the phone! Quilt looks great.

I am so impressed. Love the colors. I follow your post daily. You are inspiration for me. Thanks.

Very pretty! I did that quilt about 8 years ago in plaid home spuns (that would make me gag now) for my son. It was very warm and masculine though.

Sharon said...

I love your eye for value. There is an amazing amount of "sparkle" in this quilt, it's fabulous. Job well done!

Beautiful! Love this pattern! Gotta love FAST internet!

Sue said...

I love how the circles randomly pop as your eye scans this quilt. It seems ever changing. I really love it. It's quite beautiful.

That's one beautiful quilt! My eyes aren't sure which to focus on, the flower type design or the lighter circles. Love it!

Cathi said...

That is such a stunning quilt!! It's fun to just gaze at and realize that one moment one sees the centre of each block and the next minute circles! Beautiful!

Terri said...

Beautiful! I think you should call it "How Many Circles"! Eye teaser and eye candy all in one.

Oh my gosh Wanda. Yes I do remember. How could I forget? This stands supreme in my mind. What an amazing piece. Truly. I'm sort of short on adjectives.

Pat said...

I am glad that the computer problems are in your past. I love the quilt that you have shown. The colors are great and love the batiks. I have just started a small quilt kit that I won last year on the shop hop. I won the basket at the Oswego shop. It is all batiks and is the dresden plate. I love the colors in it. Have a nice evening.

Sheila said...

Your quilt is Beautiful! I love all your quilts, especially the ones made of made from your batik collection. I've started collecting batiks .... so one day .... :)

I really like this pattern!

Vivian said...

This is a great riot of color. Secondary designs are an added treat.
Good luck ending up with a computer that obeys your every command--quickly-- as they always should.

Kamila said...

A masterpiece. I love it.

Miss Sews-it-all said...

Oh that is AWESOME!

dls said...

Love seeing the circles these pieced blocks create! This is a beautiful top, Wanda!

What is the size of this one?

capitolaquilter said...

It amazing and huge. I swapped for a small wall hanging kit of this pattern precut and am waiting to have the time to really focus on making it since I haven't had much luck with curves.

Chris Daly said...

Love this quilt pattern Wanda. The fabrics you chose really set off the circles in the secondary pattern.
