I quilted swirls at the top, leaves at the side, water ripples below with pebbles and swirling water at the very bottom. I used Glide on top and Magnasoft bobbins (oh, they were a dream to work with- no tension issues at all).
Last week, we had a very cold day with light very cold dry snow. I threw the quilt around in it and hung it from a couple of trees. My hands were so cold, I could barely press the shutter or open the clips to hang. When it is so cold, dry and sunny with snow- it is so refreshing and bracing. I think the colors showed up real well. The back of the quilt are fall leaves- too funny in the snow.
