Stunning Mariner's Compass

I just recently quilted a top for Kim, owner of Carolina Sew n' Vac in Raleigh, NC. See more information on her store here. http://www.carolinasewnvac.com/ Stop by her shop and check out the quilt and all of Kim's fabrics and quilting goodies. Kim was delighted with how well the quilt turned out. It will be hanging as a sample in her store soon.
Before & After... Being around such intense colors made this quilt a lot of fun to work on. As always, I took great care that the quilting complimented and did not dominate the top. I had more freedom than usual to "go wild" with the quilting on this top due to the large plain areas of bold color. But I was also careful to be sure that all the differently quilted sections worked together as a whole. The goal was to have the quilting come radiating from the center. The flames in the pink, green, and blue areas intensified the explosive elements of this top & added a whole new dimension to the quilt. This quilt is literally bursting with personality, color, & texture. It makes quite a statement...

Before....
