My Friend's "In Full Bloom" Quilt

Hi all;
This is a picture of my friend Sandy's "In Full Bloom" quilt by Pineneedles. Didn't she do a wonderful job?! She ordered a complete kit from Hancocks, I think, so that she had all the patterns and all the fabric for the quilt. It is embellished with hot fix crystals and various stones as well as silk ribbon. I posted this picture because she had asked me to do the quilting for her. When I quilt the Pineneedles designs I always do the machine appliqué and quilting at the same time to get a great effect. That way you don't have too much mono filament thread on the quilt and it makes the pieces pop up a bit. I think that Sandy did a great job on it. She hangs her quilts in her hair salon so that all her customers can enjoy them. Aren't they lucky :)

I love the PineNeedles stuff. The colours are always so gorgeous. I'm currently doing Petals of my Heart.
That quilt looks fabulous. One to add to the to do list I think
