Crystal made this batik sampler, and gifted it to her mother and husband for their wedding. We decided on the baptist fan pantograph, as traditional quilting for a sampler.
however, the blocks and the batik fabrics made me feel less traditional--and I chose a bold blue thread for this quilt.
Mind you, maybe that is more traditional too. I've heard that some antique quilts have black quilting thread, to make sure the quilting showed.
Although I haven't shown a photo of it here, Crystal embroidered names and the wedding date on this quilt. What a special gift.
