The background of this quilt is made from the Ricky Tims Convergence technique (project two in his book).
The foreground ribbon was made using the Threadplay ribbon technique by Libby Lehman. I had the good fortune to attend a workshop she gave, and after watching her do the process, I was able to go home and create this.
This is also my first foray into any serious machine quilting (I usually hand quilt or send the quilt to a long-arm machine quilter).
The image below shows a litte more detail, where the quilting can partially seen in the upper border. I did a tight random quiting in the orange fabric, a wider random design in the "multi-color" print, and no quilting on the ribbon or the purple inner border.
