I’ve just started another customer quilt. She made the adorable Baby Honu quilt by Lisa Boyer. Here’s a picture of my customers quilt.
Beautiful sea green batiks and the turtles are swimming on a very pale blue background. We’ve chosen King Tut #971 White Linen for the pale blue background. I really wanted the quilting to just compliment the quilt and not become a focal point so that was the best choice. I’m doing what I call a water meander behind the turtles. The Snail Trail blocks reminded the customer of waves so I’m doing a swirl into them up to the point. All the green areas are done in King Tut #989 Malachite and it is blending perfectly. The outer border is 7″ wide and I’m doing a wavy seaweed pattern all around. Once I’ve got a bit more quilting done I will post pictures. The background water meander fill is allowing the loose parts of the turtle (feet, head and tail) to stand out and cast shadows – very nice!
