This fun quilt is Yolanda's! I met Yolanda through Flikr. She wanted modern quilting on her quilt. Not a request I get very often. I used an ice blue thread on the blues and charcoal thread on the black. Warm and white batting....I had no problem with the white showing through the needle holes. Her back was pieced with lots of seams and since the batting is pretty thin the seams stood up some...but since the quilting is pretty heavy...it pushed the seams right down and I was very pleased with that. This quilt DID NOT take 4 1/2 hours to quilt up. :) !! It was great challenging myself to some modern quilting. Thanks for the chance to do that Yolanda!!
