"Illusion" - Missouri Star Quilt Company

Customer Christmas quilt commitments are complete and I am bound and determine to get at least two of my own quilts out of the queue and completed.  This is number one.

I saw this free quilt pattern on Missouri Star Quilt Company and had to make it.  Of course if it's scrappy it keeps calling my name until I make it.  I finished it up a few months ago and knew I wanted to quilt it using the Baptist Fan quilting design.  The design does not lend itself to freehand quilting which is what I do exclusively, so I went looking on the internet to see what I could find.  Cindy Roth at Long Arm Quilting University did a tutorial on quilting the Baptist Fan using circle templates - I was intrigued.   I love using rulers and templates in my custom quilting so thought this would be perfect.  I really like the outcome as I've been a fan of the Baptist Fan design for a long long time.  Although I must say, it is very different quilting a whole quilt with templates as opposed to here and there when doing a custom quilt.  It was a bit time consuming but I think worth it.
