I was taking some more detail shots of the Willow Tree Quilt because I wanted to have a closer look at the oddly shaped, intertwined shapes at the bottom center. What are they? Root vegetables? Sprouting seedlings? There is a loss to the lower right, where the left-hand shape would taper down into a curved point, as it does with the right-hand shape, which tapers off into a point with a circle on the tip, on the lower left side.

Then, while I was looking at it, trying to figure out what those shapes could possibly be, I noticed some irregularities in the quilting design directly below. Letters. Initials! SCORE!!!
But whose initials are they? The letters look like a "B" or "E" and an "R" but I could be wrong. They're hard to read and done in a fancy script, like a monogram.
Here are some of the other detail pictures I took. Enjoy! And if you have any idea about the intertwined shapes or the initials, please leave a comment.
