This one was made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I really like what my customer did by separating those prints with a soothing off-white strip. The overall quilt top is strikingly pretty and there's a nice order to it. I think some quilters shy away from the busy prints because they're afraid those kinds can't be tamed.
For a quilting design, I suggested this oyster shell allover stitching. It adds a texture without taking away from the true stars of the show - those K. Fassett prints. When you see the whole quilt top and you're not really close to it, the quilting threads disappear into the texture.
This quilt top pattern would be fun to work on when you're enjoying a sewing day with friends. It looks like it's pretty forgiving if you accidentally reverse a row. I might have to keep this one in mind.
One more photo to share because this one is so fun!
BTW, the botanical quilt is back on the frame. It's almost done! I needed to rotate it a quarter turn to finish the borders. I'll take lots more photos before returning it to it's owner. Then, I'll enjoy a few days of rest before returning to the frame.
Enjoy your day!
