Normally Monday nights are not a sewing night for me. I guess it's the whole 'having to go back to work after the weekend' thing that wears me out and all I want to do is plop on the couch until bedtime. Last night was different. I managed to not only get the medallion top loaded on Gemma, I also began quilting it!
I was thinking of going with diagonal lines in each of the floral panes in the center. Once I looked at it on Gemma that just didn't seem right. It seems like it would break up the design of the block (this center piece is a pre printed panel). I think a spiral will work much better.
My plan is to finish this top tonight as soon as I get home from work. Tomorrow my cleaning ladies will be at the house for a couple hours when I get home. During that time I would like to get the backings prepared for the next 4 tops. Loading a backing large enough for two tops has been working out very well. It cuts down on set up time and that motivates me to keep quilting!
And yes, Mimi, I think you are right - on those feathers that I quilted the wrong direction I believe it will just be an intentional design element! Good idea!
