She requested that I not post any photos until she saw her quilt in person. (I too, love surprises)
This is a Lori Smith pattern. I kept the applique center very simple by quilting in the ditch around the appliques, on the leaves, flowers, on the vase and then I quilted a frame to set off her beautiful applique. Deb's Feathers is an edge-to-edge design that was quilted around the applique block and triangles.
