Ultra Suede Quilt

My client made this from 3 yummy shades of ultra suede!
With a loftier batting it is really more like a comforter.
I have use ultra suede for backing, but this was the first time I have quilted ultra suede that has been pieced. It actually worked out very well.
There are also 3 lovely embroidered tapestry blocks.
While I did a simple and open swirl over the quilt, I followed the flowers on these three blocks. 
Wide cotton backing in a mottled rust, looks like old cracked leather. 
What a super gift for her daughter's wedding after Christmas!

Really nice!! The quilting goes SO well!! Very calming too. I guess I'm feeling a bit blinged out with Christmas already.

Wow! You did a really fantastic job of blending the floral quilting square with the swirls on the other parts. Ultrasuede - Now I want one! ;D
