Once she saw the rose garden pattern she was in love.  

Matched with a meandering leaf in the 9 patch blocks.

The pattern matched all the wonderful old world fabrics to a tee.  Using a very light butter yellow thread showed the topstitching better than matching it with white.  It was important to keep the same thread color tone as the overall color tone of the quilt.
