    Thanks for your comments! Boy do I love this board for all the comment love!

    I drew out the shape I needed, cut it out of a cereal box, then used a piece of cheap white chalk to outline the two body shapes where I needed them to land. Those were quilted separately, adding the headdress feathers, arms and legs where they needed to be. The rest is just freehand filler doodling to fit around the kokopellis. I chalk an X if I need a particular motif to land in a particular spot, then just put the music on and go for it.

    I don't use pantographs - I am not very good at that, and for another $15,000 I could add a computer to my existing machine... probably not gonna happen. To me, it's art - doodling with my giant machine, taking clues from the fabric/design/piecing (and client's preference) to decide how to quilt it. Quilts talk to me... :)

    Oh you are so right about letting the quilt talk to you. Using the computer I think takes the artistic talent out of the picture and makes it manufactured. The freedom of expression is all over this one girl.

But OK, I'll confess: I also love when the back of the quilt shows off the quilting!! ;-)
    Very nice! What type and thickness of batting did you use?
