Maybe this block should have been centered in the quilt.  I believe that was my original intent.  The pebbling makes the applique stand out, much more apparent in 3 D real life.  I originally tried echoing around the applique but picked all that out.  It looked terrible.  I rather like this effect.  I have to finish this quilt and get it off the frame.  We need that room again for the wee one next week. 

My next quilt will be an Edge to Edge (E2E) free motion simple pattern.  I have enjoyed designing the quilting for each block.  I know the ruler work echoing might be considered vacuous but it seems to suit the blocks.  The free flowing feathers in the negative space offsets the straight lines.  It is hard to see the whole effect when the quilt is wound up on the frame.  Another reason to finish.  So I can actually see the complete picture.  Soon, maybe this weekend.  After I vacuum.


  1. The pebbles bring the applique to life!! Can't wait to see the entire quilt!

  2. Looks wonderful to me... also love the wonderful colors/print you used for the blocks. They all came out so well. We are our own worst critic's. I bet it will be fantastic! We only need to please ourselves... that's hard sometimes... I guess I'm just envious of the great job you are doing. My don't look this good that's for sure.

    1. Ahem... "we are our own worst critics" So I bet yours looks just great...

  3. Wow, that is amazing! I love it so much, I had to comment and tell you I found it to be fabulous!
