Leafy quilting

Here is another quilt I worked on recently. It was a fun diversion and allowed me to check that my problems with the shirt backing weren't just to do with having a pieced backing. Isn't it good when a customer is also a friend and you can say things like that. I really like the idea that the maker will be doing the artistic quilting while I just put in the background to hold it together. It is an interesting way of making use of a longarm quilter and I enjoyed it more than basting the quilt. I am sure I shouldn't say this given my line of work but I do enjoy enabling people to do their own quilting. I hope I get to do more pieces like this.

"Artistic quilting" might turn out to be a bit of an exaggeration, but I'm glad you had fun with it.

FWIW, the permalink to the post is here.

That's wonderful quilt ... even unfinished. Your leaf quilting pattern is beautiful.

Of course, I meant *my* quilting might not be artistic - Ferret's is lovely, and really captures the essence of the pattern.
