Pinkest Friday Finish -- 2.14.14

Happy Valentine's Day.  I worked on my most Valentine's-like quilt this month to get it finally finished.  This quilt pattern was from Yahoo Groups Spring Mystery, 2012.  I even had the quilt top done before that because I was a pattern tester.  The hold-up on this quilt was that I was really new to longarming and I was having a lot of fun with a new template.  Well, the top looked great, but I never looked at the bottom.  There were tons of eyelashes.  This took 16 hours to rip out and I did it over time through different road trips and vacations.  Well, I decided on quilting this with swirls instead of Hearts of Flutter (which I tore out.)  The results were awesome:
Quilted with Circle Lord Swirls, of course.

The same polka dot fabric for the back was used for the binding.  I don't think you can go wrong with polka dots!

I met my February goal a little earlier than normal.  I'm happy to link up with Fiber of All Sorts.
