After spending some time waiting to be quilted I finally loaded it onto the frame and got quilting. The background on this quilt just begged for waves to make the large negative space really shine. I couldn't say no. I quilted each section in a coordinating color thread. The turquoise, gray and pink sections each had their own color. Since I used very light colors for each of these I don't know that it made much of a difference.
My quilting is all hand-guided. No computers were forced into slavery to bring you these fun swirls.
The anchor itself was quilted with a simple design.
I really like the waves. The quilting took almost 10 hours over several days to complete.
Poor lighting isn't great for good photographs but I think you can see the quilting.
The binding was made with one of the prints used in the quilt. I finished the binding by machine. I didn't have an opportunity to take a photograph of the completed quilt before I handed it over to my friend. I'm hoping she shares photos of it after she gifts it.
