I have completed the quilt for my nephew's wedding and named it Mountain Spring. The grey fabric with the spots of colour look like wildflowers in the mountains in springtime, and the diagonal lines of blue across the quilt look like cascades of snow melt in the mountains in spring.
I finished the quilt with free motion quilting in the wide borders. I did three rows of leaves and swirls, and a big cobweb in one corner. I try to put a cobweb into all of my free motion quilting designs.
The back of the quilt is fabric that I bought at Ikea a few years ago. It is numbers spelled out in words, which is appropriate at my nephew is a mathematics teacher.

|The cobweb design on the front of the quilt is subtle because I used dark grey thread to blend with the fabric.|
