Quilting plans

A pin basted quilt.....


A free motion quilting design chosen ~ Echo Shell from Leah Day ~ and sketched....


.....and practiced on a FQ size sample....


Now, to get up the nerve to try it on the real thing - the 60" x 80" real thing!!  One section at a time, right?  Wish me luck!
