Before I talk about the quilting, here are the quilt facts:
Quilt made by Beth (she does beautiful applique work!)
Quilt pattern: "Flea Market" - it was a series last summer in Quilters Newsletter Magazine.
Batting used: Quilter's Dream Cotton
Thread used for top: Superior Threads "Antique Silver" Metallic #064
Bobbin thread: Superior Threads "White" So Fine #401
The TOWA gauge for the bobbin thread was set at 220 - I just played with the top thread tension.
All Free-Hand motion.

Okay - I had so much fun quilting this quilt. I usually have fun - but I have to tell you that I always second guess my quilting until I pull the quilt off the frames - then I just love it.
The borders and center flower points were free motion straight quilting - no rulers, so it may not be perfect, but consistent hopefully.
I absolutely love the sash in this quilt. I mimicked the curve lines, then free motion quilted ovals, then went through each oval with connecting curves. This was really fun.

More pictures on my blog.

That's a truly "one of a kind" quilt, I love it! Your quilting is fabulous too! I can see where the whole quilt would be fun to make.
