The borders are on and it has been layered and pinned ready to machine quilt. I could do it the easy way and just do a wavy line up the tree trunk and swing arcs in each tree and background triangle or I could do a variety of lines such as diagonal, vertical, horizontal, cross hatching etc. in each tree and maybe scrolls in the background and diamonds or curves in the plaid sashing. Any ideas??? I like easy but that doesn't push me to creative free motion quilting.
While the wind was howling over the weekend and it was just howling because we didn't get more than a dusting of new snow I finished machine quilting the border of my Glorified 9 Patch. I'm getting brave and tried a free motion feather. well half a feather and figure 8 ovals. My brain and hands did not always want to swing the arc to the left then right, my habit is to go right then come back with a large arc to the left from years of doing the concentric tear drops on quilts. Now just trim the edge and sew on the binding. Check out all the quilts at Judy's Design Wall Monday and be inspired. Temps just above 0 here. Its a good day to quilt --Ann--
