Ice Cream Cone Quilt Finish

This is my UFO project for Country Threads monthly drawing. This was number 10 for January. It is a Buggy Barn design that was modified to be smaller. I started it in the summer of 2012 when I took a Buggy Barn class.

I had planned on practicing with the long arm and quilting it this past summer, but that never happened.



I tried to quilt swirls in the ice cream scoops themselves. The rest of the quilt is in loops. I barely had enough of the multicolor stripe for the binding.
The raspberry back was one of my last purchases from one of my favorite quilt shops before it closed, but I love how it pulls the whole thing together.

Of course my swirls were the best on the last two blocks! I am never going to get better on the long arm unless I practice, even though it scares me silly. I make my students persevere, so I better too! I hope to get some more projects done on the long arm soon...
