Here are some close-ups. If you click on the pics, they get bigger and the quilting is easier to see. My goal with this quilt was not to "over quilt" it. Its such a simple design that I wanted the quilting to be simple to correspond with the theme.
I did swirls, pebbles and leaves in the background of the applique and then used Lava variegated thread for the veins in the leaves and the design in the center of the flowers.
Another shot, showing some of the detail:
This is the design I put in the "flower" blocks. If you look at the overall photo of the quilt, you can see that the piecing creates a flower-like block starting in the top, left corner. I wanted to quilt those separately and came up with the design below. I quilted a continuous curve design in the rest of the cream colored blocks. There is no quilting in the colored fabrics as I wanted them to stand out.
Another shot of the back just to show a bit more of the detail.
And here's one of them "fancy pictures" that shows the top and the back in one shot!! *smile*
