You can see that there are A LOT of pieces to this quilt! There is also a lot going on, so...what to quilt on it?
Well, in the border, I decided to do just a little curve with a leaf. Then I treated the square on point as one block and added a continuous curved design from Pam Clarke. Then I added a line around the gold triangles with a hook type feather inside.
I did a feather in the blue part of the one block and a swirl in the orange part. The green triangles will eventually get feathers and the blocks bordering it will get a curved cross-hatching.
Here you can see one of the border areas that has a feather with pebbles around it and more cross-hatching blocks.
Here is the same type of picture, but different angle.
I am in hopes of getting some more close-up pictures with more texture showing. I used Gold Metallic thread that was super cool in how it sparkles in the sunlight! Maybe I can find a way to capture that too! If not, you will have to just imagine it! Anyway, it is one quilt that I am glad to be done with! All in all, it took about 70 + hours to quilt plus all the designing I did and marking beforehand which makes it well over 100 hours! Needless to say, I am behind! Anyway, I will be back soon with many more quilts that need to be blogged!
