I wanted to keep the quilting simple, yet I had to do something fun in those big, open blue areas. So I played with the new flower I learned. This is what they looked like on the back.
To give the design some cohesiveness, I quilted a flower in the centers of the crossing blocks.
I filled the border with a dense paisley-type pattern. My goal was to push it back so that the flowers and the orange are what caught your eye.
Wendy's class was so popular, she was asked back to teach next year. She'll be at Asilomar April 2-7th. If you've been waiting for the perfect class before going, this is it. Wendy is a great teacher and a really fun person. You won't be sorry!!
