Eiko's Blue Girl Quilt

This is the 2nd quilt that I completed recently for my customer Eiko.  This one is destined for one of her granddaughters.  It's a nice mix of complimentary blocks.
I remembered this time to take a "before" picture.  I love to see the difference the quilting makes.
Finishing up the very last row is always satisfying, especially when the design spaces out so well at the bottom.

The quilting provides a lovely texture but doesn't overwhelm the piecing.
Eiko chose the Whirlygig panto for this quilt and I used So Fine in Fern thread on the top and Primo Soft in Military Gold for the back.
The backing she provided is this bright Chartreuse which gives a nice pop to the overall quilt but I didn't feel that it worked to also use for the binding so I picked a complimentary Teal tone on tone to frame it nicely.
Another nice customer finish is in the books. I'm sure she will be thrilled with the result.
There is one more quilt for Eiko to show you.  Stay tuned.
