This exquisite quilt was made by Elaine. Elaine does the most beautiful appliqué and embroidery, and it is always a pleasure to quilt for her. To see Elaine’s butterfly quilt click here.
The quilting really evolved on this quilt while it was on the machine. I always knew that I would do the curved cross hatching at the sides, but once the main lines were done, and the quilt stabilised, I then came up with the concept of how I wanted to do the feathers.
I love how the curved cross hatching has created a circular effect around the centre appliqué panel, and this was exactly the effect I was aiming for.
Elaine chose a plain fabric on the back which is perfect for showing up the quilting beautifully.
