In terms of complexity (and perhaps execution) this is probably some of the best quilting I have done to date.
Feathers flow along the white stripes.
The paisley scroll along the inside edge was much easier to execute than it looks.
I hope that you see that the design is thistles growing out of hearts.
And some tartan for the back?
While all my quilting is was done free hand - I should say that I did get some inspiration for this quilt from some pictures I saw on the internet. The thistle idea I saw for sale as a digitized pattern by Linda Steele- mine is not the same but you can see where I got the idea from! And the paisley scroll idea comes from another digitized pattern from EmbroideryOnline. I used my all time favorite combination of Quilters Dream 100% and Hobbs Heirloom 100% Wool batting - the loft of these two together is dreamy. I tried out Glide thread on this project (Super White & Electric) - I have yet to be 100% sold on the thread - but I have nothing bad to say about the thread at all.
I just wish that I had finished and been able to post this quilt during the poll for Scottish independence!
