Trade Winds Quilt

Recommended Posts

I received this quilt from a customer and have no idea what to put on it.  I am pretty new at doing free motion designs and have not mastered feathers yet.  Is the material and the quilt so busy that the free motion quilt will be lost and I need to just d a pantograph?  Please help.  The colors are darker than the pictures. Also, the backing has swirls and is dark and busy.  Thanks

What a pretty quilt! I agree with both Teresa and Bonnie. And I'll add that you can stitch an overall in the center and piano keys in that blue border to frame it all, if your customer can take a bump in the cost. Silver thread would be pretty in the middle and matching blue thread on the border. Have fun--it'll come out gorgeous!
