A short while ago Betty put this beauty up on the frames and is making great progress quilting it. To say that this is a work of art is an understatement. The colours are wonderful and rich and just pull you in for hours of gazing - truly spellbinding.
It's her version of Kaffe Fassett's Fruit Salad. Same principle of triangular pieces, but elongated into an isosceles triangle rather than an equilateral triangle (who says you never get to use your math?). The triangles are about 4" tall and about 2.5" at the base and totally hand stitched.
She's quilting it close to the seam lines. In the border fabric - that yummy, yummy red print - she's outlining the blossoms and the leaves which adds a nice organic touch compared to the structure of the centre panel.
