    :-D :-D :-D :-D I was wondering if any one has any idea as to how I should quilt the borders on this table topper. I did the free motion on the Fab-u-Motion tonight. I did not have any problems with thread breakage like I usually do and it was fun. I just have to train my left shoulder to relax. It was so much fun using it. Any ideas on the border? Enjoy the picture. Huggies, Fay Sorry the picture doesn't do it justice....P.S. Next time I will not do the extra loft thing on the feathered wreaths. Not sure if I like it or not, but I'm sure Sis will love it.

    Wow that is absolutely gorgeous. I love your feather wreaths. I would continue the feather theme and just make them have a curvy look to them on your borders. Awesome job and table topper - I thought it was a full size quilt when I first looked at it.

    Thanks,

    Really pretty topper. You could put plastic over the borders and draw different designs on it to see what pattern you like best with it.

    It looks like you have the feathers down, why not continue that in the border.

    Sounds good to me.

    You did a "fab" job with the quilting. I'm still trying to master my Fab U Motion. Your post gives me hope.
