Anyone notice that there is not a feather anywhere on the quilt. It really did not want them! I am so happy with how this quilt turned out. The quilt is 102 inches square. I did bead board in the outer border. And I SID all the boards and between the color changes. There are hours of SID in this quilt. Everything else is free hand.
The white fabric is solid white. So it needed some life. I did my leaf fill in all of the white areas.
I made up a swirly pattern to file the cactus flowers.
The back of this quilt is spectacular!
Here is what the center of the quilt looks like on the back.
I am so happy that I did not go through with my original plan. It would have been OK, but this is so much better. I have learned that I need to listen to my gut more.
