My Follow the Leader quilt features Christa Watson's newest fabric line with Benartex Contempo Studio, Abstract Garden.  I love Christa's playful prints and that each of her lines coordinate with the other previous lines.  The background on this quilt are grey prints from her Fandangle fabric collection.

I quilted the negative space with straight lines at different angles.  This creates depth and movement.  I actually messed up my quilting plan but didn't realize it until it was too late and just left the error.  I don't know if anyone will catch it, definitely not at first glance.

I have another quilt featured in QuiltCon Magazine but I'm going to save that announcement for later.
