Modern Custom Quilt - Farmers Market Quilt

 Linda pieced this incredible Farmer's Market Quilt (Laundry Basket Quilt patterns)   I love the neutral colours in this quilt top - especially the pops of blue.    She specified custom quilting, but not too too dense.   I loosened up some of my quilting and still did a lot of texture quilting -  to show off her piecing.
As you can see in this photo -  the quilt has a centre focal point.  
The flying geese were quilted in a way to allow them to stand out.   While the larger triangles had a simple continuous curve and swirl design.   
 Around the centre 'medallion' section,  I quilted around the triangles and the diamond shapes to allow them to pop and give that centre area a frame. 

When I do custom quilting, I try and choose 4-6 designs to use throughout the quilt...this keeps everything uniform and ties all of the quilt together.   
The rest of the photos here are self explanatory -   eye candy.  :-)
Linda did a fantastic job of piecing this quilt.   When things are really accurately pieced and pressed,  it makes the quilting easier, but also allows the way I quilt to show off the piecing even more.
