A refreshing breath of spring air in a customer's quilt

It felt fitting to quilt this beautiful top as the snow fell and while I was wishing and hoping for spring to hurry up and arrive!
My friend, Maureen did a lovely job appliquéing and piecing the top for a customer and I was lucky enough to get to quilt it.
Originally we had discussed some pebbling or cross hatching in those flower centres but as I worked on it, I quickly realized it wasn’t required.
So I stayed with my meandering leaves and loops with bead board on the two outside borders.

I used an neutral shade of my favorite Glide thread for some added sheen. I am very happy with the result and more importantly, so is Maureen.


  1. It's just wonderful Jennifer! Your quilting is perfect! I love your meandering leaves.

  2. cute! Hopefully, it felt like spring, while you were working on it - like your quilting, and how the flowers stand out against it.

  3. Thanks! I forgot to mention I stitched in the ditch around the petals, too. That helped make them stand out for the background a bit more. Thanks for visiting!

  4. This is a beautiful quilt! Love the way you quilted it! It feels like spring!

  5. Thanks, Lorette! And we all need spring, don’t we?? lol
