Custom pebbles and curved crosshatching

This lovely quilt includes one of my favourite colours - teal blue, and was made by my customer Elizabeth.  She asked me to custom quilt it for her and with teh contrasts in colours this worked better than an allover on this occasion I feel.

She wanted it to have a fairly modern feel to it, so no feathers for this one...  so after some discussion with Elizabeth and her husband, I have quilted it with pebbles, curved crosshatching, and back and forth lines in the star blocks...  and some bead board in the outer borders, and also some straight line quilting in the sashings filled in with pebbles in a channel...  I think it has turned out great...  I love the back too and as I use the same colours in the bobbin as when I change out the colours in the top, the back has a multi coloured effect.
