Custom Quilting at the Studio!

Here are some close up pictures of a wall hanging I completed for a customer at Sparrow Studioz.  I try to incorporate some of the designs in the fabric or quilt into the quilting design.  This quilt had little hexagons on an area of the quilt so I spread some throughout the background with Glide variegated thread.  (I love Glide for the sheen and beautiful stitches I get from when using the thread.)

Here are those little hexagons in the fabric design.

This is such a lovely Oriental print, don't you think?

Here is the start of the borders, I repeated the hexagon shape, with a lotus flower on the inside.

 Here is the finished border, not sure why the colours in the picture turned!

And here is the finished product!  I hope you can see the details.  Thanks for looking!
