Southern Magnolias

This beauty is one of my customer’s quilts.  The classic, high contrast quilts always have a special attraction for me.  I used Sew Fine white thread top and bobbin, Quilter’s Dream poly white batting.  I choose the poly for the bright white color.  Didn’t want to dull the bright white fabric with a cream colored batting.  I quilted a leaf vine in the sashing, feathers with leaves and magnolias in the setting triangles, piano key border, and crosshatching in the black blocks.  If the white appears a bit yellow in the pics, it is just my lack of photography skills.

Enjoy.  Click on pics for a larger image.

She had used a pretty pink for the backing.  The white thread on the pink created a lovely quilt on the reverse side.
