Neutral quilt with modern style...


Beautiful modern quilt pieced by Linda.  I love the neutral colours she chose.   
It was pretty easy for me to see how I would want to quilt it -  emphasizing the piecing and the contrast of light and dark....and Linda was all for it.  
 I densely quilted the inner white areas and the border, using a variety of simple fills like u-turns, swirls, pebbles.   This photo doesn't show it but  I also quilted down the centre white diamond shapes and stitched between the blocks for more definition. 

 The outer border of this quilt was a scallop print. It was carefully pieced with perfect matching edges.  I just quilted along the lines to give it some texture.  

 Clamshell fill
 swirl flower fill
 a mix of swirls and pebbles I like to call jewelled swirls.
 swirls
 Backing -  I also stitched the ditch area of the outer blocks to show definition of the piecing and stabilize the fabric some more.
