ROSEMARY's QUILT JOB DONE

I am pleased to say I finished her quilt for her and posted it off, well hubby did as it was way too hot for me out there. I then had to wait to hear if she had received it safely, Di let me know she had as she goes on the forum earlier than me and knew I would be worried about it. Good thing is Rosemary liked what I did to it. She wanted it to keep that 'swirling' look so the blocks have a curve to each blade, the small triangles are done with circles, round and round and round I went.....got very dizzy at one point....only kidding....then the border,  I decided to do two rows of straight lines then the curlicues in between, and basically that was it, job done. Rosemary wanted to do the binding herself so I didn't have to do that part.
Thank you Rosemary for trusting me with your beautiful quilt it was a joy to do, thank you also for allowing me to post pictures on here of it....and of course I now have to make one for myself.

 Hubby took photo standing outside with camera through the window...
wonder what the neighbours thought of that!!!!!
 close up of blades and borders...
 just blades and all those circles...
 close up of corner...
 the back, I just love the back of this...
Points of interest, the quilt measures 48 1/2" x 67 1/2" without it's binding on -
The blades are quilted with a random thread which perfectly matched the colours of the blades...
the cream background and borders were quilted with plain cream thread -
over 1000 metres of it...
