Marylou's French Roses quilt

Fellow Girl Scout leader Marylou asked me to quilt her French Roses quilt that she made as a gift for the co-leader of her troop. 
It is a raw edge applique pattern and once it is washed the loose edges will curl up and make the flowers "bloom."
Marylou requested simple basic meandering but I also echoed each flower.
Choosing a thread that worked the best across all the colors in this quilt was challenging but I found a cone of King Tut Luxorious that was perfect.
The quilting added much needed texture to this pretty top.
Marylou was thrilled with the result and I'm sure her co-leader will treasure it.
Thanks Marylou for letting me quilt this for you.  She's already brought me another top to quilt (an adorable baby quilt) and hopefully that one will up on the lineup and on the frame soon.

That's a great gift. I never gave anything that special to my co-leaders. The stippling and echo quilting around each flower will really make them stand out after they fray.
