This quilt is only the second quilt that my customer has ever made... can you believe it? She really has a skill with machine applique. I haven't actually met her yet but her Mum Vanessa is also a customer and friend.
What a stunning wedding quilt gift this will be.
I lightly custom quilted it with circular movement in the sashings around each block using a curved ruler for guidance, freehand flowers in the cornerstones, freehand loops in the borders, and freehand leaves and loops in the coloured borders.
I really thought my photos were better than this though... they really do not reflect the beauty of this quilt. I thoroughly enjoyed working on it.
I also outlined the applique in each block very close to the edge, and quilted freehand smaller loopy background fill in the background of each block.
I used a light gold thread which really shows on the navy backing fabric.
