DWMonday ~ Quilting Gwennie 

I finally added the last borders to my Gwennie Medallion. The outer border isn’t exactly what I wanted, but this top was all from stash and I wasn’t about to go shopping now.

Before I had the borders on, I started thinking about the quilting. I use an app (no longer available), called Adobe Ideas to “draw” my ideas on a photo. This is the photo I started with.

Here it is with my scribbles on top.

This is gonna take a while! I am planning to decide on thread today and get started soon. I want to use a fine thread in a neutral color and use the same thread throughout. 

Have a great day!
