Vienna Waltz

Lorraine made this darling little quilt with scraps of cotton as well as some shiny, silky fabrics.  She called it Vienna Waltz, as the fancy fabrics reminded her of ladies ballgowns and how they swirled on the dance floor.

I quilted spirals across the main body of the quilt to enhance the dancing, swishing and twirling of the ballgowns.  In the border I quilted musical notes. 

I remember struggling with using metallic threads, but I eventually got it!  Always learning something!
