Ocean Waves Quilt with Semi-Custom Quilting

I just LOVE the colours in this quilt. The body of the quilt is very busy, so it was not a great place to spend $$ on custom quilting.  But the outer border was nice and wide, providing a blank palette...

The client chose semi-custom quilting which is priced in between edge-to-edge and full custom.  Every longarm quilter will have their own version of semi-custom, and different quilts will also dictate different versions.  On this quilt it meant s.i.d. and custom quilting only in the borders, with an edge-to-edge pattern in the body of the quilt.

Since custom quilting is quite expensive, try to get a good bang for your buck.
