This is one of the last quilts I quilted. Catherine is the talented quilter that pieced this stunning quilt. This is the back. I love using variegated when the back is black. I felt that some negative space was good to give the eyes a rest. Corner leafy feathers. Every year the Spee-be-dah beach community has a huge 4th of July celebration & quilt raffle. I quilted their raffle quilt last year, remember? This year it was all sailboats. It definitely was a challenge to go around all the embellishments, but fun to see the "personality" of each block.
