Spring Fling Quilting

I'm not sure how well it will show in the picture, but I wanted to share how I'm going with the quilting on the Spring Fling quilt.

Can I say I love it? I'm having a lot of fun :-) Why was I ever frightened of free motion quilting? Quite often as I'm doing it I'm critical of the work I'm producing, but when I step away from it, I'm always super happy.

I have quilted veins on the leaves, little circles in the centre, and added dimension and separated the petals. The additional appliqued circles around the quilt will also have little circles quilted, and the body of the quilt will have my favourite peacock feathers. I may also do a feathered border, but I'll let the quilt speak to me when I get there.

And now I'm signing off, because I can't wait to get back to the quilting!
