Kate's Braid Quilt

Receiving work in the mail is always fun as I have no idea what's inside until I open the box. My client Kate sent me 2 tops to quilt for her. This is the first one, which she made for her niece.
This is the "Before" photo. Kate used great bright colors, perfect for a teenage girl.
Kate picked out a different pantograph and when I auditioned it before I started stitching, I wasn't thrilled with the look.  She trusted my judgement to pick a design that suited the top and backing better and Daisies turned out to be the right choice.
 Here is the "after" photo.  What a difference!
The backing she sent coordinated with the stitch design perfectly.
Quilters Dream 80/20 batting, King Tut Cotton Candy variegated thread on the top and So Fine Lilac was used on the back.
Don't you just love how the quilting brings the whole thing to life?
This was a pleasure to stitch for Kate and I'm sure her niece was thrilled to receive this pretty quilt.
Next up is another great quilt pieced by Kate.  Stay tuned.

You do lovely work. It's apparent you're very familiar with different quilting pantos and the effect they'll each have on a quilt. That's so important! Seems like you've delivered an excellent product to your customer. Well done!
