Linda sent me this quilt for LAQ 2of 4

I am sorry I can't always come up with catchy names for quilts..LOL. I don't know the pattern names all the time..so I try to make up my own..and today it just isn't coming to me.

Anyway, we wanted to soften the lines in this quilt..so in order to that we have to do a design circular in nature. There are many leaves and flowers in the batik fabrics she chose so I just incorporated that same sort of design for the quilting. I am going to call this my "Sweet Pea Vine" Design. I am not sure why..I just think it sounds pretty. It's the first time I have done this and I think it is sweet and pretty.....I finished off the borders and side setting triangles with a curvy feather.
Love the finish. Beautiful quilt..beautiful colors...and fabulous piecing!
Thanks Linda!

I used Hobbs polydown batting and I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA.

Thanks for looking.
