Back to quilting, finally!!

So here is the art quilt, finished!! Finally!!  Is it too late for a new years resolution, well, I resolve to do more of this, I really enjoy playing with the pieces and the stitching!!  So here are the results of this last one.  I added the outer rim after, as you can see by my previous post.  Not sure I like that method, as it didn't lie as flat as I wanted and the batting was tricky to match up, but live and learn, maybe practice will work that through.  The stitching was mostly free form, swirls.  I now understand the benefit of really good quality thread when doing free form, many birds nests later!!!!    I will try to post more often, and thus it will make me quilt more often!!! :)  Be Creative
Oh yes I forgot, the size is 25 inches across, perfect wall hanging
