I love quilts with white backgrounds, they always look so fresh and bright !!! This quilt belongs to Jan, one of my customers who chose some really soft pastel coloured fabrics aswell as various white on whites which has resulted in a very pretty quilt. Aswell as the soft fabrics, she hand embroidered flowers in the white blocks in a thicker embroidery thread which I feel really makes this quilt. I discussed my concerns with her about quilting over the embroidery, not knowing if my hopping foot on my machine would catch and pull the threads or not. However we agreed to try it because she preferred an allover design, and it worked perfectly, I did not experience a problem at all, I slowed down in those areas, to minimise any risk of pulling.
This was quilted with an allover design called "Debs swirls" which you will find in the patterns section of my website.

The thread colour is duck egg blue which looked very nice indeed !!!
