I enjoy doing custom work, and this quilt, a beautiful example of machine applique, gave me another opportunity. The small stippling around the flowers really make them pop. I try to match the thread color to the background as much as possible so the flower is emphasized, not the stitching. I stitched in the ditch between the border and the main body of the quilt. The border has a leaf vine and curl treatment. Between all sixteen flower blocks there is also a leaf vine and curl that swirls around. Happy quilting!
