Blue Batik String Quilt

Gwen made this stunning blue batik quilt.

She didn't want a pantograph and suggested swirls in the center. So, swirls it is. I did straight line quilting in the solid border areas, and it was pretty hard to keep them straight. The top thread is Lava, Deep Sea thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.

To me those swirls look like waves on the sea, and really work against the colour of the quilt top.

Stunning! oh darn another quilt I want to make now.
I hope Chesty is feeling better.
