Free Motion Quilted Bedspread - Starting the Border
Work has started on panels to go around the border of the bedspread I am making for my daughter. I have chosen darker colours in similar style prints. These strawberries go well with the other strawberry prints.
This rose design is lovely, but it took me a while to get used to the shade of pink. It stops just short of being sludgy.
The backing is yellow because I have run out of pink, and I have enjoyed doing this pattern with the free motion quilting.
Unpicking this folded over corner wasn't such a marvellous experience, but I thought I would turn it into an exercise in serenity. It didn't take half as long as I thought it might, which is just as well...
