gilded again…

A few years back I quilted a baby size quilt with Anne Bright’s gilded E2E design. However that was long before I had a longarm, and I ended up tracing out the design and quilting through the tracing paper. When a friend of mine brought me a black, white, and red quilt I knew immediately that I wanted to use the same design. I forgot to snap a picture of the front of the quilt, but she provided me with the white fabric for the backing. I knew that I needed to add just a bit more fabric to mount it on my longarm. I added the black fabric, knowing that I wanted to quilt it using red thread. Here are some pictures of the back.

I love the mixture of swirls and not quite feathers.. and some paisley and fern elements..

I used a solid black for the binding to calm down the busy front of the quilt (that I didn’t grab a picture of.. ) so I had the extra black for the back. I think this quilt ended up bigger than me or my friend thought that it actually was.
