Blue and Cream quilt finish

 

At last I have managed to take a photo of the whole quilt. This is a big quilt, 94” x 77”. It is wider that it is long.

I put a lot of different stitching styles into this quilt.

Straight and curved ruler work in these areas:

The maker didn’t want any stitching in the blue and cream squares but they did need a little stitching. I stitched along the wavy print lines with cream thread and put 3 straight lines through the middle with dark blue.The setting triangles filled with soft fill.

Curling ribbon in the first narrow border and piano keys in the cream border:

Big soft swirls in the outer border:

All those borders looking good now. I think this is a brilliant result for a first quilt.
