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