This was free motion quilted with a fairly large meander leaving the quilt nice and soft. I used a variegated thread in the bright border and then in the outer border repeated the variegated thread but used the even feed foot and my machine's serpentine stitch.
Finally found a great use for this variegated thread!
I was about finished photographing the back when in bounded this guy heading straight for the quilt (of course)!

In today's mail was one of those small squishy packages that we quilters so love to see, and this one was the result of having won a recent giveaway from Barbara Woods - this sweet gathering of fat quarters! Thank you so much Barbara!
Keeping those in the path of the raging fires in California as well as all the firefighters in our prayers tonight.
The last major finish of 2017
