Modern Custom Quilting...

 Stacey and her mom Lynn brought this beautifully pieced quilt to me.  (Carolina Patchworks - Sweet Garden Pattern)  I think I drooled a little...
 The colours were stunning,  so perfectly pieced,  and perfectly placed.  Every print that had a special direction, was placed in a uniform direction.   
 I did a figure 8/wishbone design in one direction of the sashing, and ribbon candy in the other.  
Some of the blocks I did swirls, pebbles, straight line details..
Each block was outlined with stitching for best definition:
 ...some of them I left on their own like these wee ones....they look like little pillows! 
 Some blocks I kept simple....
 ...and some blocks I used the print to dictate my quilting,..
 with outlines...
or following the detail in the print to give it texture...

The backing was just as beautiful -   the piecing, again,  perfect.  Here is a sample where it has been pieced: 

That's right -  where?!  

Hobbs 80/20 batting
Glide thread in white
Wonderfil Decobob grey thread for bobbins

Pattern:  Carolina Patchworks Sweet Garden

Quilted by me on my APQS machine
