Best Quilt by Aileyn

Aileyn loves circles, so these purple globes spoke to her. By changing the values and shapes of the individual flowerets, she created the illusion of the spheres. She cut each little floweret free hand from a small piece of variegated fabric from Jeanie’s stash. Aileyn created a separate “back quilt” to attach the Globe Thistle to, giving it a border without enclosing it like a pieced border.
