The colors in this quilt are so vibrant, purple, blue and yellow. Using a coordinating purple hue in the thread was a very good choice.
The edge-to-edge quilting design chosen is Basic Curled Feathers. This design by Urban Elementz is not basic at all. In fact, it is a premium design in my catalog. As you can see from the images, it is an amazing motif and lends dimension to the quilt.
Basic Curled Feather is a very dense pattern that looks good on almost any quilt.
I love pieced backs. This mystery quilt had a cute cross on the back, it looked like a wrapped Christmas present. You can sew how the quilting pops out on the solid portion but recedes with the print.
Unfortunately, the batting, while extremely high loft, was also abrasive. It tended to create burrs on my needle which caused thread breaks. Going slow and with patience, the final result was beautiful.
