The backing fabric is a coral batik, very luscious! You can see it here on the take-up roller. In the centre of the quilt is a foundation-pieced heart.
Emma asked for hearts in the quilting initially, but the fabrics are all so heavily patterned that the quilting wasn't really showing up very well. I changed to wiggly cross-hatching in the corners, curvy echo quilting around the edges, a bit of custom work in the central block and a large feather wreath on point in the main body of the quilt.
In the early morning light the quilting shows up in relief very nicely here - it's a pity you usually have to look at the quilt from a funny angle to see it!
The quilt's with Emma now, being bound in a hurry...
... here's hoping the recipients like it!
