Joy Earle-Quick has made this truly beautiful quilt. The pattern is one of Di Ford's from her book "Primarily Quilts". Joy has used a gorgeous bright pink striped fabric for her flowers, they really made the flowers 'pop' the colour is quite bright but a perfect choice for this quilt. I have quilted around all of the applique as I feel this helps frame the work, I have then sewn very freeflowing feather vines coming out from the stems of the flowers. I feel that this gives the quilt some movement and a flow. Behind the main stem of leaves I have quilted a quite tight swirl pattern to allow the applique to stand out. The borders have a combination of feathers and some cross-hatching that points into the centre of the quilt.
