"Decadent Victorian"

I LOVE THIS QUILT! It is so beautiful! And, it uses a jelly roll. A client of mine made it and brought it to me to quilt. I had a lot of fun doing it. She wanted it done similarly to the picture on the pattern. In some areas I couldn't tell what they had done, so I did my own thing. For the most part, though, I stuck pretty close to what they did in the picture.
In the small pink inner border I did circles side-by-side. In the upper and lower horizontally pieced sections I did feathers.

I also did feathers in the corners. In the dark brown diamond I did cross-hatching.

The white squares are all stitched in the ditch.

I filled the center pink diamond with a feather motif.
I recently finished a 2 week class on creating feathers using a plastic template. I used the technique I learned on the outer dark brown border. I did an alternating feathered wreath border.

I love the back of this quilt. My client had a light mint green fabric. I used an eggshell colored thread, which made the quilting pop on the back.

Another view of the back. It looks really cool. I had a lot of fun doing this quilt, and it turned out looking really quite similar to the photo on the pattern. :)
