Another ‘eye spy’ quilt, with lots of busy-ness going on in the fabric colours and patterns.
How to quilt it? Well, an all-over motif was the logical choice, in a thread colour (dark purple) that blended. I did what I’m calling a ‘Lady Liberty’ motif — start with an arc, then come back over the arc with upside-down V-shaped spikes, start the next arc, repeat…
You should be able to see what I mean by looking closely at the centre photo and the back.
