Custom Quilt for Betty

One of my friends from Stitch Its (my Thursday stitch group) made this quilt. It is her retreat quilt because she worked on it mainly when she went on retreats. The main pattern is called "Twilight Hopscotch" by Kim Diehl. Betty designed the scallop borders herself and appliquéd them. 
I used a purchased pattern with feathers and circles for the "blocks"

The feathers are hand-guided on the scallops. The circles were added individually to
fill in where the line pattern/scallop didn't quite meet the appliqué. 

Flax colored thread was used front and back for a subtle look.

Circle used to border the inner part of the quilt and a simple line in the narrow border.
