Some quilting completed

I managed to get the quilting done in the interior of the Indigo Stars quilt.  I began with some "stitch in the ditch" on the small grey-green border, then I outlined all the motifs in each block.  I chose to stitch a free-form feather design that would fill the background fabric easily, making an almost mirror-image in each area.  (Almost, as I didn't mark anything before beginning to stitch!)   I decided to stitch the binding on before finishing the quilting in the final border - that way I can centre the design.  I managed to get the hand stitching finished before I headed to my guild dinner, so today I plan to get this one finished!  I did no sewing yesterday, but I baked 4 loaves of bread, made my first batch of pesto, as there was enough basil, then baked a double batch of chocolate chip cookies.  Dinner was easy - re-heated ribs that I had slow cooked last month (freezers are wonderful), cooked some rice and green beans and dinner was on the table!


  1. The quilting is just gorgeous! You are so talented! I love the colors in this quilt.

  2. The quilting is looking beautiful--as usual. :-)
