A Cobblestone Path-finish

I finished up my Cobblestone Path quilt in time for my monthly goal at Sewbittersweetdesigns for August.  I absolutely love everything about this 46.5 x 65.5" lap quilt.  I talked a bit more about this quilt in this post.  I had a bunch of fun quilting it up this past week.

The white fabric begged me to do U turn quilting on it, and then I wanted these fun funky feather vines on it and thought I could do columns of them if I ignored the piecing and I think it worked out wonderfully. The idea for the feather vines came from Luann Kessi, her sketches are very inspiring! Just look at the texture that I got with the quilting!






Found just the right backing in my stash!  Love when that happens ;-)   The price was right at the red tag 50% off fabric sale at JoAnns even if I didn't know what I would use it for at the time, LOL   Off I go to pick out next month's project!!
