Just finished the quilting on this one yesterday for a client in Texas. She'll be giving it away as a wedding gift and wanted to personalize it just a bit, so I added the recipients names with interlocking rings in the top border. Tons of feathers! Used Glide Military gold which is beautiful, but dare I say...I was tired of looking at the shine! and sneaked a little So Fine #50 cream into it!

I picked up pencil and paper to create a challenging quilting design and came up with this
which I then transferred to a poly sateen with chalk pencil
and began to stitch, using a 60wt thread and a few rulers, here's the progress....
and some more...
Is it perfect? heck no!!! there's bobbles and wobbles in the stitching lines and the grid work is definitely not exact...but I love it!
