Flying geese applique quilt

I finally started quilting today, I have really procrastinated (big word for me LOL) over this quilt!, I had loads of spare hours today and so I was determined to start quilting.

Still with no quilting plan at all, I decided to start with one applique block, so I quilted around the block and then around the applique and then sat and stared at the quilt again!

What I really wanted to do was all over feathers inside the block, but I knew my quilting ability was not up to that challenge yet and also I wasn't sure if that motif would work.

So this is what I very suddenly decided to do, I marked it with my blue washable pen before I could change my mind and started quilting.

I cant believe I got lucky and it worked out so well, since this picture was taken, I have quilted the block next to it the same way and sewn all the prep work ready on the other blocks, so tomorrow I can finish quilting the feathers.

I now can't decide which filler design to use inside the feathers, so I'm off to the The freemotion project  for some inspiration!

I'm so happy that my sewing worked out today, I really thought I would be spending my quality time with my  unpicker!

I hope you had some quality sewing time with your projects today too!

Hey, that looks fantastic!

It's so hard to get motivation up to do the quilting when there's no design calling out. You found a really neat one, though.

I'm glad that you didn't procastinate any longer because I think your quilting and the design look wonderful...
