Measuring 92" x 84" this is a big quilt, it has a 10 " border which you can see is very busy so the quilting I did is lost. I did a paisley and heart vine.
Jill wanted the 'heart' to not get lost so I ditch stitched either side of the dark squares and cross hatched the centre of the heart and did a loose stipple outside the heart to make a background.
If you click on this photo you will see what I have done , also you see the 'peeper' Jill has made to go around the colour wash quilt centre.
In the yellow sashing I quilted a rope using Maderia Polyneon thread, I love the hint of sparkle these threads can give to a quilt with out looking like a hooker running fast with junk jewelry!
