My friend and longarm quilting customer, Linda, sent me a gorgeous quilt top to quilt. It’s a gift for her mother. The fabric of saturated purple and blue and green is simply stunning! I can see why Linda didn’t want to cut it up into small patchwork pieces.
The color tones of the fabrics are so similar in value, I could have quilted a simple design like “meandering” to merely add texture to the quilt. But the quilt is a special gift and the fabric is so awesome, I decided a fancier quilting treatment was warranted. I quilted loops and double loops in the border. I quilted large, bodacious flowers surrounded by leaves in the large squares, smaller flowers in the smaller squares, and a curvy fern frond that stretches across the three retangles.
Linda, your mother is going to love this quilt!
