Raffle Quilt…..Machine Quilting

I scurried out to the Thread Shed early this morning 

to get going with the machine quilting 

on the 2015 raffle quilt donated to

The Women's Cancer Coalition

I will mark a stem line as a guide 

for the big leaf vine design…

Today I am using a blue marker

I don't stitch the stem line….

it is only a guide for my free motion leaves

I drew out some feathers

but have decided to go with the leaf vine

I echo quilted around the leaf vine after it was all stitched…

After all of the vines are stitched out…

I will stitch horizontal lines between the vines.

All of the vines have been quilted and I started on the horizontal lines (forgot to take an image).

I am hoping to finish the quilting on this tomorrow.  

I will post images soon!

The autumn fog is back…

It gathers along the river just below the back yard.

I love to watch the sun come up and burn off the fog

The blue jays are feasting on sunflower seeds in the yard.

Your farm is in the most gorgeous spot. Oregon is just beautiful. I like your quilting plan and can't wait to see how it looks when you are finished.

Our place is on a ridge so our descent into the nearby town gives us a view of the tops of the fog a carpet!!! Love your leaf feathers! I use my flex rule versatile, hmmm? Can't wait to see your next phase with this one!!!!
