Claudia's "Daydreams Around the World"

Claudia made this quilt from fabric from the Daydreams collection by Stephanie Brandenburg.  She came home with a 3rd place ribbon in the "Duet Large" category of the Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild 2013 quilt show.

Claudia likes to be involved in the designing process for the quilting.  She usually starts with a vague idea, and then I send her drawings for her to mull over.  She makes the final choice.  She knows what she likes and she's happy with the end result. 
For example, here is the drawing I sent her to choose a background fill for the flower panels.
