Cross Stitch Quilt

I have quilted a few quilts for Maureen with cross-stitched blocks.  The blocks on this quilt were hand embroidered by Maureen’s mom.   You would think my hopping foot would get caught up in the cross-stitch or other embroidery, but actually it glides over it   quite easily.  Isn’t this a lovely quilt?

In the blocks, I outlined in the cross-stitched flowers  which gave them great definition.  I also added a curl design in the sashing.

For the borders, I did a free-hand scalloped design with flowers in the center.  In between the scallops I added a small  feather motif.

It’s always fun to look at the back to see the quilting even better.

I used my favorite washable wool batting, which will make for a lighter weight, warm,  comfy bed quilt.  

The Spring time colors of this quilt are so refreshing.   Makes me think that Winter just might really be over!
