|Fresh off the frame!|
I strove for balance rather than symmetry when placing designs. Repeating filler and vein motifs kept things from getting too crazy.
In my last post I'd considered using brighter thread for the veins. When asked, my client expressed a preference for the quieter thread I'd already stitched. It was probably a good call on her part...it might have been too easy to go overboard!
Wind fills the background around the frames...wild and blustery!!!
Stylized leaves complete the outer border. The leaf motif was inspired by Lori Kennedy's "open leaf with spiral" design. (I only used the right half, stretching it to fill the space.)
I'd left the frames for last. I'd toyed with the idea of leaving them un-quilted, but they just looked unfinished. In fact, before they were stitched the quilting felt a bit disappointing.
|Still not feelin' the love.|
|KaPOW!!! Lines bring the whole quilt to life!|

Hopefully its owner will love it, too!
