When I last posted, this donation quilt was just a completed top with a couple major seams ditch-quilted. You can see the back story of this quilt here.
A combination of free-motion and walking foot quilting was used to complete the quilting. First, I had hoped to find a tutorial for quilting some little bees in the central daisy panels, and was delighted to find this tutorial on Lori Kennedy's Inbox Jaunt blog! After some practice I managed to create a critter that vaguely resembles a bee ...
The sashings are quilted with a few variations of easy flowers and leaves. These photos mostly depict the sashings as a pinky-beige on my monitor, when in reality they and the outer border are both a lovely golden color. I admit to being a challenged photographer!
For the outer borders I returned to the walking foot and stitched two lines of my machine's serpentine stitch, stretched to the maximum (which wasn't all that large) and am very happy with the puffy effect, not to mention the speed at which the borders were stitched! I think it took longer to pin them closely to keep the fabrics from shifting than it did to stitch all the lines!
The back has this cute rolling hills and farm fabric bordered with strips of the same fabric as the border on the front.
