My plan is to get it loaded on the long arm this week to get it quilted. I purchased this great book by Natalia Bonner called "Beginners Guide to Free Motion Quilting", which can be purchased here. It is an amazing book because it actually shows you how to quilt the designs. I am going to try out several of her designs on this quilt. This quilt will also be the first time that I do some "ruler" work as well. I must say I am a little nervous to quilt this because the "whole" family paid for the supplies for my sister in law and I to make it, so in a way, it kind of feels like my first customer quilt. Here are a couple of additional pictures showing different parts of the quilt close up:
The above is a pic of my mother and father in law. My father in law passed away last May, so this is just one more reason why this quilt is so special.
I was pretty impressed that it actually does look like a tree, so hopefully my quilting will make it look even more like a tree! Wish me luck!
