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!
