I loved the idea of adding the red cording to this whole cloth quilt, along with more traditional trapunto. Of course, the quilting was wonderful. It was entered in the large, innovative quilts category. I think it is, in some ways, a modern take on the whole cloth quilt.
The individual quilting designs could be considered quite basic. Combining them with the celtic knot designs (with trapunto for emphasis) and using the red cord to define the interlocking circles elevates those basic quilting shapes.
