Botanical Quilt is Finished!

Yes,  I'm doing the Happy Dance!  And yes, I do indeed need a few more dance lessons.  But I don't mind if you laugh.  My family often does.

Here's the front.

And a zoom of the front.  The zoom shows off the salamanders around the center medallion and the outline quilting.  I think I'm in love with outline quilting.  The effect is stunning to me.

The borders are hard to photograph.   These are fern fronds (repeated from the center blocks with 3 dark squares) but these are curled into circles.

The back is pieced also and it has a center medallion too.  It's not easy getting these to line up.  Loading the quilt becomes unconventional and sort of starts from the center.
Back side - pebbles (front side- in the dark brown triangles) are evident here.

There are more botanical quilt photos from this post.

Enjoy your day!
