Blue and Green for Nancy

Nancy loves blue and those colors next to it on the color chart (i.e., purple and green).  This is her latest quilt.   Can you believe she does a lot of her own designing when it comes to her quilts?  Well, actually, she tells her husband what she envisions and he draws it up for her on EQ (Electric Quilter).

The question was how to quilt this.  I try to give her a different quilting design to look at with each quilt that I do for her.  The white blocks between the whirly bird blocks needed a special design.  I’ve never done these kinds of flowers on her quilts (I don’t think I have…), so that is what I started with.

I added flowers to the blue blocks in the center of the whirly bird blocks, too.

And, how do you finish out those colorful strips?

I had no idea of what to do with the border, but when I looked at those X’s at the end of the colorful strips, I thought I should incorporate those somehow.

I hope this gives you some ideas of how to finish your next quilt!
