"Chocolate Under The Mistletoe" quilt

I have now finished another project from my "To do list"!!! The pattern is by Leanne Beasley from her new book "Romancing the Road Trip" and is called "PS: Dont forget the Chocolate". A very easy quilt to make, took me 2 afternoons!! The fabric I used is from the Moda range "Mistletoe Manor" by 3 Sisters, so I called this quilt "Chocolate Under The Mistletoe"!! I posted a pic afew months ago of the quilt top, and had finally put it on my quilting frame last week. I usually just stipple or meander quilt but this time I decided to do something a little different and I came up with a freehand swirl and star!! Pretty good for my first attempt at this I reckon??!!Sarah xx

Thanks Ladies :-)
Pamina, I have a quilting frame and usually just stipple/meander, I just CANT follow a pattern with the pointer as I find it too hard!! I didnt have pattern for the stars, but, I got my Everyday Angels done at the quilters and checked it over and had a go on my frame - freehand!! :-)

How lovely is your quilt. I also have that book and have made the easiest bag in the world ( I think) many times. Your stipling is fantastic, i really enjoy stipling, it is so relazing I find.
