Because this quilt was so light and airy (for lack of better terms to describe it), I wanted to keep the quilting similar. The first thing to decide, was what to put in that middle 12-patch. I opted for a CC-type flower with simple echoing to make it stand out.
Moving out, I decided on a cute flower motif that I first saw in a Deloa Jones quilting design book. Deloa has some great ideas and is a wonderful teacher, should we ever get to take classes again. I surrounded the design with pebbles next to the center 12-patch.
And then used it again, without pebbles in the borders and the eight-patch sections, throwing in a little dot-to-dot quilting ala Angela Walters.
In the four-patch blocks, I repeated the 12-patch design for continuity.
Finally, in the background, a simple swirl design filled in the open spaces to keep the design light.
And a couple shots of the back...
