Lover's Knot

Brenda Jones and I found each other at the 2009 NC Quilt Symposium at Peace College.   We talked about some tops that she has pieced in the 80s.  She found my card a couple weeks ago and asked me if I would quilt her tops. 
I went back and forth trying to decide whether to use feathers or leaves on this quilt.  The leaves won out.  I did wreaths around the centers of the light blue areas.  I decide not to quilt heavily in the light blue ring and instead did concentric squares.  

 In the dark blue areas I echo quilted the shape and then quilted leaves and tendrils on the inside.  The background is quilted with a leaf and tendril allover file. The border is done with a larger version of the same design.  
The back really shows off the quilting.
