Show Off Quilt Finished

I just finished this single bed quilt designed by Maple Island Quilts called Show off.  I am so happy with the way it came out.

It is a modern style, and very fast and easy to piece.  I hand quilted a pattern on it called the Bishop’s Fan.

I decided to hand quilt this for a few reasons. I knew I would love the way the curves looked quilted on top of the various boxes, contrasting sharp edges with soft curves. I always like to have some hand work so that I can pick it up when my husband and I watch TV, and when one of my hand stitching quilt groups meets.  Also, I know that this quilt will stay in our family for a long time,and be passed down.

I dedicated it to my cat Biscuit. He has always been attracted to the fabric with the triangles, even as a kitten.

I am in the midst of making other quilts, but thinking I will be creating this pattern again for a king size bed for just us.
