Normally, I'm one of those quilters who plans the quilting design before the flimsy is finished. Not so on this project.
I knew I wanted trapunto in the center, and this is how it turned out.
posted about here in October. It turned out to be far more painful and annoying than I'd figured on since I used a new marking pencil which brushed off, and my machine FMQ basting is rather terrible.
Part of me says "stop there, that's enough"
But the overriding voice is saying "it needs background fill to make the leaves / flowers pop".
My current concern is that the curls will be consumed by the background fill.
Tim Lattimer did on his Tree of Life quilt.
What would you do?
