Afternoon of Quilting

This afternoon I decided on the free-motion design I wanted to quilt on the 3 D Stars.  That took a while.  I thought I wanted feathers, but I am not a good free-motion feather quilter and could not get one to look the way I wanted in the space I had.  So I created and tried out more simple leaf designs on paper.  When I had one that I liked, I practiced the selected design on paper in the actual size and shape space. 

After that I practiced it on a scrap sandwich with marked spaces.  Then I worked on the quilt with matching gold thread.  I finished quilting all the center gold area.  I’m pleased.  Here is a small area.
