Dorothy's Celtic Applique

Dorothy brought me this quilt that she made as a wedding gift for a special couple in her life.  She followed a pattern for the Celtic applique, but the layout was her own creation.

I quilted a topographic all over design in the body of the quilt.  I used my favorite gold thread - Magnifico 2063 - Clover Honey as most of the fabrics have a metallic accent on them.

The background areas behind the applique were filled with pebbles.  For this job I used my favorite thin thread - Micro Quilter.

Dorothy purchased one of my wide backings in a deep brown that complimented the rest of the quilt perfectly.
