I'm doing 'McTavishing' (what else?) in the outside borders, w/random stippling in the cloud areas in the border and interior background around the appliqued hearts, ruler work in the green sashing borders, and I haven't decided what will be in the pink owl border, just know I'll be using Rainbows Strawberry to do it.
My ruler work is improving - FINALLY, and I'm actually starting to enjoy doing it - YEAH!
I just received some new workshop DVD's from Jamie Wallen, and after watching just a bit of his feathering in the Mystical CottonTracks Workshop I, I think I may finally have a shot at executing some decent feathers. In fact, I'm auditioning one aspect for the pink border in this quilt, and I believe it may work quite well. We'll see after I do some more practicing ;-)
UPDATE 11/10/12: after watching more of Jamie Wallen's workshop DVDs, went for a combination of freehand swirly heart paisleys and I think they were just the ticket:
I wasn't too sure about this design until it was quilted - now everyone says it 'makes' the quilt!
Back of the flannel back w/quilting - I will be using more flannel, LOVE how the stitches sink into the flannel
Coming off the frame - ready for binding!
In the meantime, need to get back to my stippling, love to stipple in manual mode, makes the stippling go FAST ;-)
