Default Cattails Quilted

Finished quilting my Cattails in The Meadow. It was another one that I had absolutely no idea of how to quilt it. I looked everywhere for ideas and drew a blank. I just started and made up the design as I went. The quilt police will have a heart attack if they see this, but with all the problems against me I am very proud of it. My tremors were worse than ever, I chose the wrong backing, a tone on tone that was like sandpaper, no sliding at all. I had to pull every inch through my machine which is a DSM not a long arm. I could not find my supreme slider and was not about to run out and purchase another. The stitches are totally inconsistent . Oh well, it is done. Thanks for looking.catails4.jpgcattails.jpgcattails3.jpg

I think it is beautiful and your FMQ looks great to me. Is it a Judy Neimeyer pattern?
