The quilting on this beauty was completed late last night, have you noticed a trend of late night finishes? You may get the idea that I am a bit of a night owl and you would be correct!
I guess the block construction was quite a challenge, it was a class project, but Leslie persisted until she got them done. Her points are always so nice and the quilts so square and this one was no exception.
The quilting is hard to see at a distance, the fabrics are busy batiks and the thread is a blue/green variegated in the body of the quilt and a King Tut green/yellow variegated for the border and sashing.
Each block has a leaf wreath and the border is leaves. If you click on this close up you can see some of the quilting detail, it's very "subtle" so as not to distract from the geometry of the quilt.
I forgot to take a pic of the back but the quilting was even less visible there with an olive green Bottom Line thread. I love BL thread in the bobbin, not so much in the top because it seems to shred on my machine [unless I go slow]. I would use Sew Fine in the top when a thinner thread is needed, not necessary in this case.
The quilt is already on it's way back to Leslie but I will ask her for another pic once it's bound.
