Okay, so it doesn't have scalloped edges right NOW, but it will when she binds it. Soft, graceful scalloped edges. This one was quilted with the pantograph Honeyscuckle by Urban Elementz. And, this is the very first one quilted on my new HQ Fusion!
I hope if Diane reads this, she'll let me know what this pattern is called. I know it's made with a specialty ruler, but I don't remember which one.
I'm usually very critical of my work, but I must say, I'm very happy with how this one turned out. I took longarm classes from Debby Brown (Handi Quilter: Educators / Debby) on feathers and ribbon candy. I'm thankful to her for giving me the confidence to believe I could do it, and to Diane for allowing me to choose the quilting designs for her quilts.
I quilted two circles, like a plate and its rim on the Broken Dishes blocks. Immediately, it reminded me of the adapters I used when I was kid to place over the spindle of a record player to play 45's. And you're showing your age if you admit to knowing what I'm talking about LOL!
It should be a crime for me to show you quilts made with fabrics that may be impossible to find this long after the line came out : ) I love the folded edges turned back and machine sewn down. (I know there's a pattern line, but dang, I can't think of what the name is). Superior Threads came out with the turquoise and brown variegated thread #994 KARNAK King Tut 2,000 yds. around the same time, and they were made for each other!

I love it when the quilting on the back makes its own pattern
This is Diane's embroidery quilt. Several of the pieces are fabrics that get their design element from embroidery stitches instead of being printed with a pattern. Add the fancy embroidery stiches on some seamlines and the quilting, and this quilt is full of texture.

A large stipple in the larger, lighter pieces
Ribbon candy in the unembroidered half of the overlapping star points
Meandering loops in the black background of the star points and loops forming a pattern in the sashing. Please click on the photo to get a closer view of the texture in the terracotta colored pieces. Amazing!
Smaller stipple in the center formed by the parallel embroidery stitches
