Quilting Celtic Solstice

Originally I planned to quilt this with the same panto that Bonnie used, Celtic Swirlz.
However after quilting two swirls I decided that I did not like how it was sewing out so I frogged that and went freehand………….
 quilting swirls all over the body of the quilt ………….
 traditional straight-line quilting in the piano key border, with "C"'s in the sashing and a larger swirly design in the triangular border.
 The swirly design shows better on the backing which is pieced with left-over strips from the border.
I will try to get a better pic of the entire backing tomorrow but for tonight I am too tired! I stayed up late to finish it, because I want to take it to Tucson to show Bonnie on Wednesday! It won't be bound but neither is one of the other Bonnie Mysteries that I am taking for show and tell!
