Curved Quilt from Studio Picture

There is a beautiful quilt hanging over the rails, waiting to be loaded, in the pictures I posted of my new studio.  Julia did a beautiful job piecing the quilt.    I have not seen a quilt pieced like this one before, it is kind of like a Drunkards Path with it's curved piecing but it is done free from and has multiple arcs.  I really love the way the piecing looks.

For me the focus of this quilt need to stay with the piecing.  So I quilted an all over swirl design from border to border then did a complementary design in the border.  

My first thought had been to use a light teal blue thread which was the color of the backing fabric, but I really liked the sage green thread better on the top.  Luckily the sage green blended with the backing fabric too.
