Machine Quilting: Large Chevron

Beth made this quilt and wanted a unique style of quilting to show off the difference between the scrappy chevron and the plain stripe.
 Knowing that the light stripe would show off more of the quilting, we decided to quilt this area with swirls to soften the lines in the quilt. This quilt is a tad bit on the girly side from Beth's usual style, so when in Rome, we decided to go girly.
 To offset the swirls, the scrappy areas were quilted with a leaf design that's still soft and organic, but adds more texture.
 It's harder to see the quilting in this area due to the variety of colors and patterns in the fabrics, but the difference in quilting textures is apparent on the back of the quilt:
Beth chose to use a solid backing similar to the solid in the quilt top. These backings show the quilting so well, you could even flip the quilt over and use it as a whole cloth quilt depending on the design.

This quilt turned out great and it was fun to do. Thanks, Beth!
