The other day, I shared my dilemma with my little shoo fly quilt. It was an early long arming victim of mine and I wanted to save it. I am quite happy to say that I was able to add quilting on my domestic machine and the bagginess in the border that bothered me so is gone!
I used a slightly darker thread than I had used on the feathers and I did a small stipple around it. I loved the echo and beadboard quilting ideas but my free motion skill on the domestic machine has greatly deteriorated since getting the long arm! Here are close ups.
Thanks for all of your suggestions and ideas. I procrastinated on doing this forever because I wasn’t sure how to tackle it. Now, a year and a half later, it finally feels finished!
