WIP Wednesday - Pebble Quilting.

Well since I deleted my time wasting "game" of Farmville on Facebook on the weekend, I suddenly have all this extra time to quilt! I have finished the time consuming thread changing echo quilting on the spikes and sewn all the loose threads in the back. Then I echo quilted around the outside of all the spikes and then put the FMQ foot on the machine and started the pebble quilting. Just a little more to go and then the binding!

Looking good Helen! and I hear you on needing to delete farmville lol, it took about 3 months of my life at the end of 09 :)

Fabulous! I was hoping you were making a bed size quilt with those spikes, was anxious to see what it was going to look like. But this smaller version is still looking fabulous!

I am totally in love with this new pebble quilting. It's even better than the free form one that stirs my heart. Is it easy to master? Cherrie

Looks fantastic, Helen! Love the pebbling - and that must have seemed relatively fast after all the colour changes on the spikes!
