I played around with a couple of different ideas for the quilting. At one point, I thought that I might do feathers. At another point, I thought that I would do a lot of circles and other fun stitches. In the end, I went with the more modern approach, and I ending up liking it a lot.
The quilting templates that I bought from Jamie Wallen a make it so easy make nice small circles.
Since I made this quilt for our charity auction, I was not being that careful in the quilting. I don't know if this is a bad thing or a good thing, because once I give myself the license to NOT worry about it being judged, it gets progressively sloppier and sloppier. But sometimes, it's nice to give yourself a little more artistic freedom and go for the fun and not for the perfection. Don't you think so too?
So here it is all complete, with a close up to show you the quilting.
