I always find quilting a panel a good way to extend yourself and practice experimenting with different quilting designs. This large panel (measuring 56 X 74 inches) has lots of beautiful soft floral images. I outline quilted and added features like veins and stems in black thread, then quilted the background in a cream. I tried to extend the original design into the negative space and fill it with lots of patterns that ‘ghosted’ the leaves and extended the floral arrangement. As you can see it has added a lot more texture.
