Joanne's Christmas Quilt

My customer Joanne brought me another wonderful top to quilt for her.  She actually made this one for her hubby so he chose the quilting design and threads used.
I've been good about remembering to take a "before" photo so you can see the difference the quilting makes .  What starts out as a pretty quilt top....
...turns into a fabulous almost completed quilt.  Binding is the only thing needed now.
Her hubby chose the design Hubby Hubby, So Fine Ivy for the top thread and So Fine Toast was used in the bobbin.
Joanne made a great off set pieced backing with leftover fabrics from the top and a really pale Tan, almost Cream, tone on tone print that really shows off the quilting beautifully.
Her hubby was thrilled when he picked it up and I know he'll enjoy snuggling under it when the cold weather returns to the Northeast.
I look forward to seeing what fun quilt top Joanne brings me next to quilt for her.
