Ferris Wheel Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Lori made this fun Ferris Wheel quilt. It's such a fun quilt, with a lot of piecing and a little bit of applique!

When Lori mailed me this quilt she asked me to custom machine quilt it for her, She liked how I had machine quilted Jan's Ferris Wheel quilt a year or so ago and asked if I'd quilt hers the same. I loved how I had quilted Jan's so I was more than happy to quilt Lori's the same!

The quilt pattern originally comes from the book It's a Circus, I love how bright and cheery it is. 
That negative space border is what really makes the custom machine quilting pop! I really love playing with negative space. :)
I machine quilted pebbles as the background filler and then quilted a fun flower in between each Ferris Wheel. I wanted to add just a touch of detail.
