Sampler Row Quilt

One of my clients brought this sweet sampler row quilt to me to have it quilted. She wanted something different in each row, and had ideas for a few of the rows, leaving the rest of it up to me.

I did leaves in the outer border. I stitched in the ditch around the sun and echo quilted around the applique flowers (I'm showing you the back view because the quilting shows up better). In the triangle row I quilted squiggley lines in a diagonal pattern, with ribbons in the background. In the fourth row I did swirls.

In row 5 I quilted feathers. The row below that I did flowers, then leaves below the flowers.

In the log cabin variation blocks I quilted a square spiral. In the bottom row I echo quilted the diagonal lines of the row.
I used YLI whole wheat colored thread
