I actually drug myself to the machine yesterday and finished the quilting on my Easter pillow.
I'm not sure why I've been so sluggish lately, but I was and still am. Maybe it's the weather?
I had fun quilting and that's what it's all about. So I'm going to convince myself to repeat what I did yesterday.
The back side. Yes it's just batting
I did an echo stitch around all my palm fond feathers. I like all the denseness of the quilting.
It may not be perfect but I'm pleased with it. Maybe someday it'll be perfect, but I'll settle for fun.
Today I'm repairing a 10 year old baby quilt. This quilt has been heavily loved. I will fix what I can and have already told the child that he should retire his blanket. This quilt is so soft and cuddly I kind of can't blame him but this quilt isn't long for the world even with the repairs.

Have a wonderful day and I hope you get time to stitch a few minutes.
Take care, Brandie

The quilting on your Easter basket quilt looks fabulous, sure looks perfect to me. I'm feeling pretty sluggish too, must be something in the air. ;)

It's so adorable. :D Ugh! The slugishness has abounded lately. I think I'm on the upswing out of it. Sure hope so!

I like the quilting, especially the palm fronds. Very appropriate! Congratulations on finishing. I wish I could say the same!

Linda said...

Your quilting is really pretty! I mean really pretty. I would have never known that was just batting until you pointed it out. LOL!

Lori said...

Your quilting looks great! A master quilter told me once if you do enough quilting you don't see the mistakes. I agree!
My goal isn't to be a perfect quilter:)

I love your quilting and I know it's very good. Life's too short to be perfect!
