Sorry for some of the inside pics (they are under my Ott-Lite), but by the time I washed it and dried it 10 minutes in the dryer, then laid it flat, there was no daylight left. Got some pre-wash shots outside in the back yard however. Interesting to note the difference in colour in different lighting! I will add a few more tomorrow.
I did a "jigsaw puzzle" meander with the odd swirl or loop in the blue squares sections. I went to town with quilting on the zigzag sections, first sectioning them off with my walking foot, and then filling the section with loopy designs ranging from circles to figure eights to weaving back and forth.
In each of the lone deepest green zigs, I did something a little different from the rest of the quilt.
|The top corner has a Plume Feather design of Angela Walters.|
|In the bottom one I wrote "om" leading into a feather design|
|After washing, a little more crinkly but not overly so, just perfect!|
And one last interesting angle! Yummy, run-my-fingers-over-it texture!
Monday morning pics update!
|Well it seemed to show the texture much better in person...|
|This gives a better idea|
|Maybe this shows it...it's just better in person I guess!|
