Getting Up Close with My Quilting - Overall Paisley Swirls

Overall Paisley Swirls was a perfect choice for the quilt on Heather's Scrappy Quilt.

I selected the color pearl for the thread.  It is like a white, but not as stark as white. It looks great on white fabric and on colorful prints too.

Heather did not use a quilt pattern to make this quilt.  She created the medallions with scraps of assorted colorful prints. She stitched them onto white fabric and then bordered them with more colorful prints.  All of the centers are black prints.  What a great way to use all of your colorful fabrics!

Heather made pillow shams to match the quilt and ....

coordinating backs for the pillow shams.

I took a photos as I folded them up to get them ready to mail.

Thanks for sharing close-up shots of your quilting. I learn so much by seeing what other long arm quilters do.
