Millifiore Quilt Completed!

I finished the Millifiore Quilt for my sweet husband. He calls it the Millifiore Quilt because the 4-patch posey kaleidescope blocks look like millifiore glass to his eyes. It never ceases to amaze me that so many interesting blocks come out of a single fabric. The fabric I started with (the border fabric) was Oriental vases.

Here are some detail shots of the quilting from the back--done by me, on my little Husqvarna domestic sewing machine. The middle swirls and border loops were done free-hand. The border motif was traced to quilting paper and sewn through and torn off. I like using Hobbs 80/20 batting because it washes up to look like an antique quilt.
