Fat Quarterly Quilalong Quilt Finished!

Been feeling a little off over the past week so I've been a little bit computer awol!! I do have a small finish to show though....my little Dream On quilt that I made with the Fat Quarterly Quiltalong is done.
I thought with all those squares that it could do with a freemotion circle-y pattern for the quilting.
The back uses up some of the leftover blocks I had made up.
Amy Butlers dots in orange make a wonderful binding.
Have a fabulously stitchy weekend!! xo

This quilt is beautiful and the spiral quilting looks wonderful! It really adds another dimension. How funny that I used the same tangerine dots for binding my quilt-along quilt too!
