Overall Design with a Twist

The Customer wanted an overall design but not over the top of the applique which was on two opposite corners of the quilt.  So using the leaves and the curls of the applique as inspiration I came up with this design.  Using a variegated thread in the colours of the top, with a black thread in the bobbin.  The back was also a pieced quilt, and after centering it I was able to avoid any major problems with bulky seams.  Customer was very pleased and I think the recipient will be too.

  1. Great idea - echoing the applique motif in the quilting design!
