Originally this customer had planned to have this quilted with an all over design.  Her friend told her that she could just see this with custom quilting especially in the white areas.  The complex feather design contrasts with the spirals in the blocks and I used spirals and feathers in the border designs.   I agree with the friend, this quilt is magnificent with custom quilting.

When this quilt top was delivered, I was told that her mother loved dragonflies and loved purple.   I had to shop for additional backing, in purple, of course and used purple thread to quilt dragonflies across this stunning quilt.

This quilt just sings with design.  It’s hard to see the music pattern on the white fabric, however, it was the inspiration for the musical quilting pattern.  I used gray thread and the result is melodic.
