Romance in the garden (a quilt)

I take the photos.  Why do I procrastinate and not upload them for you?

Here’s some closeup photos of a recent customer quilt.  This is one of my more prolific quilters who enjoys softer beach-y colors.  This was from a pattern she called Romance in the Garden, although I can’t find any pattern online that looks quite like it (sorry!)

I chose to quilt whimsical feathers and fun spirals as the client is rather free spirited than traditional.  Had the fabric been more traditional, a background of crosshatching with formal quilt feather motifs would have been right at home on this quilt.
