Simple Block Quilt

I got a phone call on Monday morning from someone who needed a quilt done quickly. It was her first quilt ever, and she just wanted it quilted along the seams. I love the fabrics she picked. They are mostly all jewel tones, and they look so gorgeous together!

I used a variegated thread, Butter Toffee, and quilted tiny leaves on a vine on all of the seams. The leaves are about 1 to 1 1/2 inches at the widest.
She used a poly-fill batting, around 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick, to create a puffy look. It turned out really cute, and surprisingly, the machine didn't have any trouble with the thickness of the batting.
