Coming Down the Stretch

I have about half the tree to quilt yet.. Tomorrow.. I'm using different threads.  I love King Tut and the Isocord.. I tried the rayon by sulky... it is not for me...unless it comes in a thicker thread.  So here are some photos of the quilting..I am doing basic leaves.. I am really getting comfortable with free motion quilting.. after this quilt I will have a lot of practice under my belt.. I feel that the sky is the limit...!!

More Quilting on the Run

I decided I am not afraid of quilting anymore.  I am actually enjoying it.. Not sure if it is just the way I am thinking or because I love my new Babylock Espire machine.. I do know that with the technique I am using that I learned from Wendy Butler Berns seems a bit harder to quilt.  There is a layer of decor bond in the quilt.  And it is a bit stiff.  But in a weird sort of way it kind of keeps it from shifting too.. So here is some of the quilting I was doing today..

Quilting has begun

Just wanted to show some of the quilting I have done so far.

Jessi's face is done.

That was one of the hardest parts for me.. I must have 6 faces that I practiced on.  I decided to paint her eyes and lips.
