This Quilt was pieced by Jill Jordan it is a Jinny Beyer Kit
Thread is a mossy green from Aurifil
Batting is a 80/20 Black Batting (a must)
Here is the border fabric, I choose to quilt around the printed designs.
This quilting seems to give the quilt a personal touch with some wonderful texture.
The back is a black fabric which is why the black batting is a must.
I have learned through trail and error that white batting will sometimes come through on the backside stitching.
Throughout the quilt I used straight lines as well as some feathers and leaves
Overall the quilting went pretty fast once I figured out a quilting plan.
Jill did such a great job piecing.
I wanted to make sure that the quilting complemented the character of the quilt.
Custom quilting does take extra time but I think that it is worth it.
I am proud to say that I quilted this quilt, in the end that is what really matters.
