Just in case you are new friend visiting, the Roundabout quilt is the Quilt Along that I hosted over the last few months. Each of the posts for the Quilt-A-Long will always be on my blog. You can follow these links to walk you through each step week-by-week on how to make a Roundabout Quilt , just in case you want to make your own.
This was such a fun quilt to piece!!! I just love how the blocks pop and then a second later the secondary designs jump out at you :) And I know it sounds a little crazy, but I really did love putting together all of those curved pieces. The first few were a little tricky, but once you get the hang of it, they are pretty fun and I just think they make the prettiest designs :)
When it came time to quilt, I had lots and lots of fun with lots and lots of custom quilting!!! For the center I quilted small swirls, echoed paisleys and pebbles, a favorite way to fill a big spot for sure ;) Then I did some back and forth lines to make that center design pop, followed by some large curly q's and echoed ribbon candy, and finally some echoed arches in the corners. Isn't that just so super yummy!!!
And look how awesome it turns out in the secondary design. I just love those echoed arches in the corners and how they come together to create a beautiful design. All of the continuous designs here are really what make that secondary design pop and they are just so fun!!!
It took a while to do all of that yummy custom quilting, especially as this quilt is a monster King size, but it was so totally worth it. It just adds so much yummy texture and all of the different quilting motifs just help to emphasize the roundabout quilt design. I just love it!!!!
And that is my finished Roundabout Quilt Along Quilt!!! And I am so, so, so happy with the finish!!! Thanks again to everyone that quilted along with me, as that is what makes this quilt so special. I just love that this quilt reminds me of so many of your amazing quilts!!!!
Linking this finish to Amanda's, and Sarah's ;)
