Zentangled Garden Quilt

rm1

This is Robin’s Zentangled Garden quilt and the pattern is by Jean Boyd.   I love the fabric that Robin used in the framed sections and since it was so bold I quilted it with straight lines.  I used two stencil designs in the dark green squares.  The background is all larger scale pebbles and on the open ‘negative space’ area to the right I added a echo swirl design to break up the space.   I then did a diagonal piano key design in the outer border and on the one side that had the extra green border insert I just continued the diagonal line across it.

I used black So Fine thread in the outer border and light green So Fine thread on the rest of the quilt.   Batting is a Hobb 80/20.

The other night Tim and I covered one of our spruce trees near the lake with white lights.  The light reflects off the snow in the tree and glows in our yard!
