The Lazy Angle Sampler is Finished! And We Have A Winner!

Yey I finished it!  The Lazy Angle Sampler is completely finished and bound!  I am so excited that I completely finished this project in less than a week LOL!  I really like the way the quilt looks now that it is completely quilted.  It gives the quilt a lot of texture and depth.  I also love that this was all left-over fabric!!!  It feels so good to shop in your stash instead of running to the store to buy fabric.

Like I said in my last post it was a real adventure learning this ruler and it was a little humbling to be forced to go back and do what I should have done in the first place - read the instructions!
Here's a close-up of some of the machine quilting.  I love this pattern for a densely quilted back-ground.  I think it really suits the paisleys in the fabric.  Of course I always think that quilted feathers, and their siblings, look amazing on just about any quilt - so I am a little biased.

What do you think?  Too much quilting or just enough for this wall-hanging?  I tend to think that you can go as closely quilted as you want with a wall-hanging since it needs to lay flat on the wall and not drape over a person or bed.

Ok Ok have I made you wait long enough??  We have a winner for the Accuquilt Baby Go! fabric cutter!  What I did was separate out all the valid entries/comment from the invalid ones.  I really didn't want to have to re-draw the name so I did it this way.  Invalid comments were either no-reply accounts or people that did not leave me an e-mail address.  If you left me an e-mail address you got entered - don't worry.  Out of all the comments left we had 411 valid comments and therefore valid entries.  I checked and double-checked all the entries.  If you're wondering if yours was valid - if you heard back from me via e-mail it was valid! I used the random number generator at

Drum-Roll Please!!!

The Winner is valid entry 330
