    Quilting to Christmas music - A teaser of what I am working on

    I love quilting to Christmas music. Enjoying the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Transiberian Orchestra and Bruce Cockburn. Here is a teaser of what it inspires. This is a client quilt and I love it! Very original, bright (so nice this time of year) and unique, with loads of negative space. Once I got a game plan for it I am having a blast.

    WOW, amazing quilting. Your lines are so straight. Do you have one of the computerized LA?? I couldn't even figure out how to get the washing done in one of those new computerized washer/dryer. I have some Christmas music done by The Regina Music Box that sounds so delightful.

    Hi Maniac, No computer, other than a stitch regulator. The straight lines are all ruler work. I don't think I would have the patience to digitize a design. I am with you. It took me weeks to figure out my new oven when it went from an old fashioned dial to set temperature to touch screen type digital. I miss my dials!

    amazing quilting!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wow, as usual your quilting is superb. You've taken what could have been a ho-hum quilt and made it a work of art. Did you mark the top before loading it on the longarm?

    Oh most definitely! I used a blue water soluble marker. I created freezer paper template 1/4 circles (used 4 layers of FP ironed together to make a sturdy marking template) to mark the outer lines for all the flying geese both the inner ones going around the circles and the little ones that fly along the border. I also marked off the division for the FG but did not mark out every goose just dots where triangle top needed to go so I had something to line my ruler up to. I also marked arrows so I wouldn't forget what direction and still forgot and ended up ripping two geese before I realized (yes, a bad word was involved!). The hook swirl design in the circle done in orange (and also done in the pieced circles in blue thread) I marked the circle and divided it into 8ths but freehanded the design from there. I used my circle template to quilt the outer line of it.
    There is a big 8 pointed MC style star radiating from the center pieced circle, I marked the rays of it. You can see the very tips in the picture I posted. All the bubbles (the backfill) are not marked.
