Continuous Curve Paradise

Here are photos of my latest custom quilt job completed for Kathy W.  She won the quilt top in a charity auction, and was actually pieced by her friend Mackenzie.  I love how it turned out.   Kathy chose for it to be quilted in a very classic style, desiring it to mimic the look of hand quilting.  We decided to use continuous curves on the heirloom sampler blocks and checkerboard sashing.  Micro-stippling was used to help the hand embroidered applique "pop" out from the back ground.  The heirloom look was completed with echo styled feathers in the outer borders.  Enjoy the photos!
