|This was the first attempt|
|A closer look. My hand still not quite steady.|
As the deadline for sending the quilt grew near, I knew it was definitely time to get the FMQ going. So here is the quilt, completed and shipped off today.
|Midnight At The Arroyo|
I quilted around the appliqued flowers and leaves trying to make it look like they had just fallen into the flow of the river. Then I quilted wavey lines from top right to lower left for the flow. The quilting was done with Sulky Invisible thread in the top and YLI 100wt thread in the bobbin.
You may notice that the appliqued flowers and leaves were enlarged from the floral print. It took me some time to really enjoy the piece and now that it's completed, I guess it turned out alright.
