Colleen's daughter saw this quilt that we had made (quilted on my shortarm), and wanted her grad quilt to be like this.
So Colleen made her one (only larger), and had the blocks all laid out, and her daughter started to play, and came up with this
She created these wonderful squares in the light blocks. So, I wanted to emphasize those squares with the quilting, and we decided to treat all the blocks (light or dark) and setting triangles that weren't part of that central 'medallion' the same. Arynn didn't want any flowers or feathers, and it's to be her bed quilt, so we wanted the quilting to be fairly loose, to leave the quilt very cozy.
Dream wool batting has such beautiful loft.
One of the wonderful things about this quilt is the backing. Arynn spent some time in Malaysia last summer, and she brought back this central piece of fabric.
