    Maybe that helps...

    It think it is impossible to write a tutorial of how I design a quilt. There are no rules! A quilt top of a solid fabric is like a playground for me or comparable to the canvas for a painter. Everything is possible. I am a person who loves balance, simplicity, repeat and order in my designs and of course you can see it here. But to write down a step-by-step-instruction of how to create a almost perfect quilt design seems impossible to me. So sorry...

    The batting I use here is Hobbs Heirloom 80/20. I really like it because it's easy to needle while quilting and has a very nice drape with a quite traditional look.
    The patterns are marked with a darning needle, just "scratched" in. You find some further information here:

    The backing is pretty flower print. I will take some pictures and post them later.

    GORGEOUS! I have yet to try my hand at a wholecloth quilt, but have always wanted to do one. I don't think I'm brave enough to design my own. You are doing a fabulous job and your quilt is beautiful.

    As usual, you do the most gorgeous handquilting. You are blessed with a great talent. The pattern is just equisite.
