Months ago, at my request, the couple had visited my Pinterest patchwork page, and kept commenting on spiral quilting, so I had to break out of my "Meander" comfort-zone and go for some custom quilting to complement the patchwork:
I especially enjoyed making leafy-viney borders. They are not your traditional leafy-viney borders, but I like that:
To my horror, this is what the quilt back looked like as I was quilting. I was cursing my choice of a dark color ("potting soil"), of cheapish JoAnn fabric, etc.:
But practically all the needle holes healed themselves in the wash!
The couple loved the color of the back, which matches their walnut-finish floor. And I think they like the quilt itself! It's on facebook now, getting "likes" from their friends. All's well that ends well!
