New Year's Joy!

This cute quilt has been in my quilts-to-get-done-after-Christmas lineup for about 2 months. After taking a week off during the holidays, I couldn't wait start quilting!

It's just so joyful and fresh, the perfect quilt for starting out the new year.
41 x 51
Here's how it started out: my client pinned the raw edge pieces to her quilt top in positions where she wanted them. As I worked my way across this area, I quilted about a 1/4 inch away from the edge of each piece.
 Using pebbles for the background, helped me work my way from one flower piece to the next.
When she washes this quilt all these edges will fray making this a shabby chic bouquet.
Petal theme carried around the border.

As I worked my way down the quilt, I divided this background into 3 imaginary planes . . .
 . . . and gradually made these paisleys larger as I went.
Cream Minky on the back.
