Louise's Quilt

I'm not sure if this quilt has a name or not, so I've just called it Louise's quilt.
 Louise took the really neat feature fabric with the birds, framed it out, and added borders.  She said it was her first time working with directional fabrics, so she had some fun with that.
 I used the fabric as my inspiration for the quilting design, and quilted curls all over. 

 People are sometimes surprised when I say I rarely quilt with white thread.  This quilt was done with a pale grey.  The outer border and the background of the bird fabric are both white, but to me the grey looked better across the whole quilt. 
Louise had a lovely grey backing too.   I think this quilt was on their bed for Christmas. 

Thanks Louise.
