Design Wall Monday

 I finished machine quilting "Fruit Salad" over the past two days.  I  outlined all the light triangles and the purple border, using monofilament thread.
Since I like the blocks to be the "stars" of the quilt, I did a small amount of quilting in the centre of each one, using a variegated polyester thread.
I stitched oval leaf shapes along the seams in the background green print, then stippled around the fruit in the final border.

Please check out what others are doing at Judy's blog.


  1. Your fruit salad quilt was such a pleasure to look at today in cloudy, snowy MO. I sure wish I could spend the winter in Florida as I don't like snow or very cold weather.

  2. Wow, beautiful quilting! Thank you for the paper piecing tips, I got it!


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
