Quilting along.

Hello my friends.
Each day I am working on this quilt!
I thought I`d show how far on I am with my quilting.


I have machine cross hatched the centre and 
free motion quilted the applique circle and hexagon.
Then placed on my hoop for hand quilting
round applique.


Now I am back at the sewing machine.
This is the back showing the quilting.
The flowers and leaves are the checker board border.
A little reverse stitching needed 
but free motion a learning curve for me.


Next time I post the quilt will be complete.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
