Progress on a UFO

I’m working away on my Flower Applique quilt & wanted to give you a small pic of some of the quilting I’ve chosen.

I’m doing a mix of continuous curves (in the green blocks) & pumpkin seeds in the neutral blocks throughout the border.  So far the borders look amazing & I’m very happy with how this quilt is turning out!

I’m also using King Tut Sands of Time thread- this blends amazingly well with my batik & adds a nice bit of “pop” to my green blocks.

You may wonder why I chose the fancier quilting for the neutral blocks while using a neutral thread.  My answer, I wanted you to feel the texture in the background.  I didn’t want it to hit you in your face as soon as you looked at the quilt.  I chose the CC (continuous curves) for the green blocks because I wanted to add movement to the quilt.  This is a fairly plain border & the applique is of nice round flowers & leaves & I wanted to soften the harsh green.

Can’t wait to show you more!!
