Quilting the Flower Box...
Below are pics of a customer quilt that I recently finished quilting for a lady in one of the quilt guilds that I'm in. It's from a pattern called "Flower Box" by Edyta Sitar, and the applique was beautifully hand done. I echo quilted the border areas and then did a winding leafy quilting in the inner background area similar to the border applique vines. For the baskets I did a simple feather motif and ditch-stitched the diamonds of the baskets. I really like how this turned out, it was already a beautiful top with the work she did on it, and I think the quilting helps accent that.
