I custom quilted my gypsy wife quilt with Isacord thread in gold. The strips are quilted with an all-over, free motion tree design.
Each block is quilted with loops, squiggles, swirls, and lines. It took a full week to quilt!
I left some areas unquilted so that they would pop and give the quilt more depth.
I used wool batting. So the unquilted areas really pop nicely.
For the binding, I used Art Gallery Squared Elements in Merlot.
For the backing, I used Windham Wideback Text in black. To me, it was made just for the gypsy wife quilt...perfect match.
One more full shot...LOVE! The finished size is 59" x 68".
