Black and White

This quilt is for one of the ladies up at Gracie Lou's.
She saw a pattern that she liked that was a swirl with a flower around it, and some leaves thrown in. This was my interpretation:

She wanted the hi-loft poly batting, so I did looser quilting to let the batting fluff everything up.

I used eggshell colored thread. The back was black minkee, so it didn't matter what color I used (because the thread sinks into the minkee back), but I though black would be too harsh for this cute, mostly black, quilt.

A photo of the back of the quilt. The minkee had the paisley pattern in it, so the quilting actually doesn't stand out as much as it would if it were a solid or dotted minkee.
