In early April, I ran away to a quilting retreat for a few days. I had no idea what I was going to do until I just started fusing fabrics to batting, and putting things together. This quilt ended up being the "guinea pig" for a larger piece I did. I played with different threads and quilting patterns as well as the couched yarn "binding" to see what worked best. I chose the border treatments from the top and left sides, and the center quilting like the lower part of this one. I also found matching thread for the border, so the seam wouldn't show in the corners on the other quilt. The larger quilt is "Antique Irises & Tulips" in the Windows and Trellises gallery. Retreats are great!
