This was a beautiful quilt from Elaine. She sewed her amazing batiks in a courthouse steps fashion, but decided to frame each square in the block, rather than make it look like steps. When I quilted it, I used a pattern that had a feather on one side, and a leaf vine on the other. I placed the quilting patterns in such a way that it would look like a barn raising pattern. That is a pattern usually reserved for a log cabin quilt setting. It turned out wonderful!
Here's a close up of the quilting pattern on the block and border.
