I recently quilted this "Birds of Paradise Quilt" for Kate from One Flew Over. Kate made this quilt as an engagement present with fabrics chosen by the recipient of her gift. As Kate mentioned in her blog, the fabrics are perhaps not those that she would have chosen herself and she was not all that excited with the end result. I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however, and I for one really love this quilt - it is a beautifully fresh looking quilt.
I quilted this quilt with what appears to be my new favourite pattern called Gothic Vine - it is a lovely elegant pattern.
I particularly liked Kate's use of a plain white backing which made the quilting stand out beautifully. I tend to love a plain backing - as long as you can match the thread to the backing fabric.
I hope this quilt was well received Kate - I am sure it will be loved and that the amount of work you put into it will be appreciated.
