Licorice Whip for Baby Lucas

This is the fourth time I have used this pattern, and still cannot believe how fast it comes together.  I started on Friday evening after work by cutting the pieces -- all of them.  By Saturday afternoon, the top was done and Sunday it was quilted.  No pressure, just took my time and enjoyed the process.

The backing used was a bold zig zag bordered by the main gray color used.

Of course, I personalized the quilt with the baby's name, Lucas .... I love this part.

And...a close up of swirls.

Pattern Name: Licorice Whip
Designer: Jamie Elfert, for Black Cat Creations
Finished Size: 64" x 64"

As much as I love traditional quilting, I enjoy the Modern Movement just as much.  Today, I am linking up Megan and Heather at Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday.

64in square is a big quilt for a little guy. :) I like the colors and the pattern is quite interesting. Nice work.
