    Beyond the Color Purple - gorgeous embroidery

    I just took this customer quilt off the frame. The gal who did the top took almost 2 years to finish it. It'a a Jenny Haskin's design called Beyond the Color Purple. What a beautiful quilt!!! I LOVE the embroidery and the color of this quilt. I used a double batting (cotton bottom, Legacy Wool on top). I did this to create some extra loft behind the embroidery and I love how that makes the embroidery pop - almost like a 3d effect.

    Heavenly days! Your quilting is amazing. Thanks for the link to your blog to look at the pics taken through the process in additional to other beauties you have quilted. Your customer also did a fabulous bunch of stitching.
