Stipple and crosshatching

This gorgeous wedding memory quilt was made by my customer Liza, and was one of the largest quilts that I have quilted, measuring 100" x 130".  Liza requested a freehand stipple meander in the coloured areas of the quilt in a blue thread, and I suggested curved crosshatching in the cream memory blocks in a blending cream thread.  This has kept the blocks very neutral so that the drawings and personal messages can still be seen and read.  I quilted this quite a few weeks back now, I am only just getting around to blogging about it.   I love the jewel tones of the quilt, and it was lovely reading the messages as I was quilting them. 

I just wish I had a lovely king size bed to have been able to photograph it in full.

Yes it was a whopper, 15 hours of meandering and crosshatching went into this one.
