Free Motion Quilting - Applique Quilt

Holy cow! With the sew-along and Thanksgiving last week I almost forgot to blog about this AMAZING quilt! How could I forget about this!
I just have to start by saying Donna is amazing, and has more patience that I could ever imagine! This quilt is big, like almost 100" square, and everything bit of applique is done by hand, did I say AMAZING yet!?!?
I was beyond flattered when Donna asked me to custom machine quilt this beauty for her. We talked quite a bit about how it should be quilted, and finally decided to outline all of the applique and then do a heavy background filler. There is a lot going on with the polkadot background and all of the applique that we decided to keep the background as a secondary pattern.
So, for the background I machine quilted some echoing with a few swirls and randomly some clams. I really love how it turned out, thanks so much Donna for letting me machine quilt this amazing quilt!
