Snap decisions

I finished the border quilting and going around the appliques, and was ready to start on the grass section of the background. I ruled out my earlier ideas on how to quilt it, but instead of procrastinating longer, I decided to just start. I chose the thread which matched best and made a quick decision to do swirls, but as I was lowering the needle to start, I realised it wouldn't fit neatly into some fo the spaces, and would work better on the sky area. So I changed my mind, settled on large-scale McTavishing (with the lines a genersous 1/2in apart) and got going. The grass is now about half done, and I'm happy with it.


I've had a very unproductive weekend, but with any luck, I'll get the background to this done tomorrow afternoon and evening, and maybe even bind it in time to photograph on Tuesday.

Isn't it funny how you will be set to do one thing and, all of a sudden, you KNOW that it isn't right??

You made great choices....this looks wonderful!!

The wide McTavishing makes a nice grass motif.
