A friend asked me to quilt her pink and brown quilt.  I don't remember the pattern name, but I think it is by Darlene Zimmerman.  She wanted light quilting since she wanted to use it on her bed.  Light quilting is hard for me.  I'm used to quilting every square inch.  LOL

but I cold get use to "light" quilting.  Included before and after photos.  I used SoFine thread, brown, cream and pink.  Quilters Dream 100 % cotton batting, 1 layer.  Quilted onmy Millie. Ruler work and freehand.

I understand the desire to quilt every square inch, but I think it looks wonderful.  The feathering looks excellent, and free flows to fill the area.  Great job.

I just love it when a simple "top" gets transformed into a "quilt"! You added some long arm magic and poof it is done and beautiful!

I love pink and brown quilts myself and this one started out pretty without quilting, but your quilting makes it simply gorgeous.  The quilting is perfect, really enhances the quilt.

Thank you for sharing!

Very nice indeed, but I am chuckling on this end. You may not have filled very inch, but it looks like you have filled every inch-and-a-half! I love the feathered lozenges interlocked in both the light and dark areas.
