Custom kaleidescopes

This lovely quilt was made by my customer Elaine, using diamonds to produce the star kaleidescopes.  It was excellently pieced and the centres lined up perfectly so I enhanced the centres with a continuous curve design to create a flower design.  I freehand quilted swirl feathers in the lilac borders,  freehand wavy lines in the inner borders, freehand swirlies in the sashings, and freehand pebbles in the pink background.   In the green squares, I quilted a freehand flower/swirl.   I had a lot of fun...  and was really pleased with my efforts.

Pastels are very difficult to photograph, but here are my best attempts..... 

and of course I love the back too...  the solid pastel blue backing fabric creates a lovely "wholecloth" effect on the reverse...
