    Out of Balance or maybe In Balance

    Mary sent me this quilt top to be custom quilted. I am not sure of its name but it is either "Out of Balance" or "In Balance". The quilt measures 93 by 104. Hobbs 80/20 batting is used. Mary had pieced the backing also so I was careful to line it up as much as possible with the quilt top when loading it on my frame. I quilted the floral border by outlining the flowers and vines. The outside green border is crosshatched while the inside green border has a leafy vines quilted on it. Hope you enjoy looking.

    REALLY beautful quilting. I love the combination of cross hatching with the curves of the other quilting. Perfectly executed!

    Gorgeous! What a special quilt! It's rich and elegant with a little funky surprise in those pink geometric prints.

    It could be called by either name; however, I remember it by referring to it as "peacock". Time consuming, but easy to do. So glad you like it.
