These metallic panels are becoming a weekly norm for me to quilt as of late. The metallics are very subtle on this panel, but the overall appearance is so striking, they were placed just so to highlight certain areas.
Sometimes the best option is to keep it simple. This may look more planned than it really was, but this particular design was one of the most simple custom quilting jobs I could have done. Custom doesn't always have to be super complex and intricate, although I've been doing my fair share of that type of quilting lately too.
Thank you, Nancy! This was so much fun to work on!
