So I signed up for the email news and in early December received the call for entry of the "Curves" issue. A great palette, a mini quilt challenge and time to enter... this was my chance.
Holding On to Her Secrets
The binding had to be fuchsia and the quilting followed the curves in a matching fuchsia.

So I turned it sideways, added the fuchsia corner and still it lacked something. I couldn't un-see the landscape, so I picked up my rotary cutter and added another curve: I sliced off the corner. And I have to tell you, that felt GREAT! And now I saw pockets instead of landscape.
Quilting was done in teal or fuchsia thread.
The quilting is a combination of big-stitch hand quilting on the foreground shapes with free motion machine quilting of the background.
