Customer quilting

I started quilting a customer's top this week. Here's a peek at the first block - from the back, so you can actually see what I've done! I created a filler from a leaf shape - fairly simple to look at, but more time-consuming than I'd expected.
I'm using Bottom Line threads (and have ordered a few more colours) which are giving lovely texture without detracting from the beautiful applique. In most places I'm using matching threads, but there are a few random plain filler blocks in the pattern, which I plan to quilt in contrast colours for a bit of fun.
