Quilting Berries and Blossoms Quilt ! I have used YLI 100 weight silk thread on the top and Wonderfil Invisifil in the bobbin. A nice combination.
For some reason I always make smaller quilting shapes then I intend to, I really have to concentrate to get nice large shapes. I am filling in with circles, as there are so many applique circles in this quilt. Feathers are my favorite, so I have added them in randomly around the applique. I also have ideas of quilting a few birds in the border, but it's early days at this stage so will see how it looks when I get to the border. The quilting on this quilt is similar to the quilting on my Blackberry Ramble Table Runner
Take a look at the quilting.
My quilting update so far. I try to stay away from marking pens as much as I can.

How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
