This was pieced to be the backing for a quick Christmas throw made with some French General fabric and I just couldn't waste it there.  It would have suffered.  It wouldn't have been quilted to show off the design.  So there you project begets another.  This looked like a great chance to sharpen some free motion quilting and it has been that indeed!  I sewed and ripped out more designs than I care to admit for those green stripes, even after having sketched and practiced and drawn them out on Press n' Seal.  So it's off on the side again since it wasn't done for this Christmas and I'm mulling over just what to quilt in the green flowery background sections as well as what to do to pop that center star.

Oh my gosh Jen.  Your quilting is fantastic.  I love what you have done.

Thanks, Dara.  I like how the orange peel cathedral window chunk turned out.  It took a few days to do in little bits as it was kind of boring, but it was pretty easy.  You mark a grid and bounce off the points.  I learned it in the Craftsy "Design It, Quilt It" class by Cindy Needham.  She was great.
