Stack 'n Whack

This is Vicki's Stack 'n Whack quilt.  Her fabric choice provided subtle patterns in her pinwheels.  I decided a little custom quilting was the order of the day.  Below you can see a before and after while it was on the machine.

Vicki requested one of my wide Stonehenge backings and it really shows off the quilting nicely on the back.  We used Quilter's Dream blend batting, So Fine thread on top, and Bottom Line on the back.

I haven't done this border design in a while.  I first used it back in my domestic machine quilting days.  I learned it as "Onions and Garlic" and it was a great treatment for this medium width border.
