Purple Flowers is kind of an exciting finish! I had this top hanging on the "to-be-quilted" rack for several months. It was gifted to me by my good friend, Angela, with the request that I quilt it and donate it to someone who might appreciate it. To be honest...when I first opened it up, it didn't look that appealing. I wasn't sure how to tackle it, but now, I really like it and I think it came out really cute!
I used a simple tone on tone neutral floral print for the backing and my daughter quilted it with a nice big rose vine panto in a neutral thread. This was her first time following a pantograph on the longarm and she did great! Another lady offered to bind it for us and we chose a solid plum binding to make those plum squares in the quilt pop (and also to make them look like they really belong with those grape purples). I can't believe it, but I'm happy to say the Purple Flowers quilt came out pretty darn good and was a fun group effort!
