|"It's The Journey"|
Over the past week or so I've been adding dimension, in the form of quilted texture, to "It's The Journey". You will remember this quilt as a long-running border challenge project, I posted about it here back in July. Just as in the original challenge, I have been flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to quilting this one, coming up with each element as I go along. I have enjoyed every, single, step of this journey toward completion; the quilting is no exception to that! Some continuous curves seem to play nicely off the squares-in squares and, of course, there are feathers (my new favorite thing to quilt!) in the more open border areas.
|Some feather-like shapes and curly-cues fill in the flying geese areas nicely.|
I've added more feathers in the central portion of this quilt in the Winding Ways blocks, and plan to mimic the identical border treatments as I progress outward to the opposite borders. Snowbird and I have become a good team, breathing life into this quilt as we go along, by adding some exciting dimension to an otherwise flat surface... it's all good.
Life is Good!
