Carol’s appliquéd quilt is very, very beautiful.
It is sad that the photos do not do it justice.
With all the appliqué, carol said her fingers were sore and bleeding, and it is no wonder.
But the gain for the pain was well worth it. At least we can say so.
So as not to take away from all of the stunning work that Carol had done, I echoed around each of the appliquéd leaves, vines and flowers.
Then one of everyone’s favourite topstitch patterns, leaves on a vine, but with a bit more interest by adding three point leaves.
Meandering leaves are a wonderful way to add flow and keep within the theme of the quilt. They also work well to get into all the small spaces that remain from echoing the featured appliqué on the quilt.
Carol, thanks for letting me load your quilt on the longarm, it was a pleasure to work on such a beautiful quilt.
