This quilt was started in the spring of 2012 and finished in the fall of 2018. Karla wanted to keep the integrity of the beautiful fabric, so she outline quilted the floral designs with thread choices to match. The inner light purple quilting is intricate in design. The stars are also outlined. And the background reds and purples, quilted squares. The backing fabric is a beautiful red batik.The quilting is all free motion. This quilt was shown at the 2019 Broward Quilt Expo where it won an Honorable Mention Ribbon. It is 72" x 76", cotton. Includes matching pillowcase.
