This quilt is for my brother and his family (4 kids too!) so this quilt will see lots of action and needs to be durable... I am using YLI 40/3 thread that is glazed and very strong in a natural color.
So far I have finished the very center panel quilting! Yippee :) I am so stoked to get this part finished and get to the patchwork areas... do ya think I am crazy as panels are pretty fun too... but I love the feel of patchwork under my fingers as I quilt! LOL :)
And here is a nicer view of the top of the tree... although you can't see much quilting here... I promise it is there... the outline of the tree and a pretend outline I quilted for the leaves of the tree... I may come back and add more definition to this but it is quilted moderately and the rest of the quilt will be similar. Less than my normal amount of stitching for sure :)
Now on to the innermost border...
I am surely happy to be making great progress on this quilt... what are you up to on this Slow Sunday ??? Do you stitch or relax?? Any plans for Labor Day??
