China Blue Quilt Finished

I finished quilting this a couple of weeks ago.  I made it as a thank-you gift.  The person I am giving it to doesn’t know it has been made, and I hope she will really like it.

As it will be a functional quilt, I didn’t want to quilt it too heavily, but wanted to do more than an allover to make the plain squares special. 

Once I have the binding completed, I will be mailing it to its new home.

  9. It's a beautiful thank you gift! Your friend will truly get a sense of your gratitude since you invested so much time and creative energy into making this lovely quilt. I think your quilting is elegant. You mentioned that it shouldn't be too dense, but it's definitely not sparse! I would say, Just Right.

  12. There is so much depth to your design & colors. If that's "not much" your custom quilting would make me faint for sure!
