This is Valery's batik quilt and she said I could quilt it however I liked!
The colors reminded me of Fall so oak leaves seemed to be the right free hand design to quilt in borders.
I had asked Desley for some advise on how to quilt his one. I wasn't sure whether to quilt CC's in the squares, thinking that would take too long, or an allover design. She didn't think the CC's would take that long so I went that direction and she was right. I mentioned I might do leaves in the outer border and
she though leaves would also look nice in the setting triangles as well. Again she was right :)
I have to admit that when as I was quilting the CC's (continuous curves) I found myself thinking ..."oh missed that corner", "oh that curve is to wide", "darn that curve is too narrow"....then when I looked at the finished quilt top I was happy with the end results. So keep that in mind when your quilting your projects, don't worry so much about the little wibbles and wobbles because when you look at the quilt as a whole you just don't see them.
