Charmaine's Orange and Yellow quilt

The next customer top to be quilted was this bright Orange and Yellow number by Charmaine.  It was a project from a guild workshop in the spring.
The "before" shot.  Charmaine gave me free reign to do what I wanted and while I was severely temped to do some custom quilting on it, time and her budget weren't part of the equation.
The top's colors remind me of flames and that was my first idea for designs but when auditioned, I didn't like it.  So another idea was needed.  
The panto choice I went with is Whirlygig.  The overall effect is pretty and I think the bit of spikiness of the panto design plays off the piecing and colors. Luckily I had the perfect thread in stock, Superior's Rainbows Autumn Leaves and So Fine Pumpkin was used on the back.
The quilting shows on the back just the right amount.  
Charmaine was happy with the result and so another happy customer was on her way to not having yet another UFO in her pile. 
Quilting for my customers certainly is varied and interesting.  I can't wait to see what's up next.
