I chose the refreshing colors of spring to enhance this original design in patchwork and Heirloom Machine Quilting. The center of the piece features an illustration of a lovebird nesting in a floral wreath, stitched with silk thread. The luster of the green and ivory RJR Sateen fabric reflects the original drawings. The resilient loft of the Wool batting was sufficient to highlight the graphic designs without the use of trapunto.
