Splendoriffic Spring quilt

Isn't this quilt enchanting? So dainty and fresh. It just FEELS like spring! I'm so pleased that Jane brought it to me for quilting. She wanted a custom quilting job, but not too dense. The more intricate the quilting, the stiffer the quilt will be, and it was important to Jane that the quilt remain supple and soft.

I put simple stippling in the floral outer border. You can't even really see it, on that busy fabric. In the yellow border, I used large ribbon candy. Nothing at all in the blue inner border or in the sashing strips. Then in the blocks, I incorporated orange peel (aka continuous curve) and more stippling. Simple, understated, but I think effective.
