I love this little table topper I've been working on. It was fun choosing a gradation of greens to use for the leaves.
One dilemma I had was how to quilt it. The background is a gorgeous swirly batik that I love, but the pattern makes it hard to quilt anything but swirls in it. You can see in the picture below that I decided to use a darker tan thread and simply quilt some of the lines of the circles. When I couldn't get to the middle of a circle I simply added and extra small circle to get there. This was a really fast and fun way to quilt.
Below is the back of the quilt so far. You can see there is a big open area where the flowers are. I need to add some quilting there.
And a last look at the center of the quilt. I am glad I used a darker thread for the quilting because I think it makes it really show up and I like that effect. If I am going to the effort I want to see what I did.
I hope you get to quilt today!
