A Little Progress



I've been diligently machine quilting away on my latest quilt.  I finished the narrow inner border and just have the larger border left. I think you can see my loops going back and forth on the darker fabric. The thread matches the fabric quite well so it's a bit hard to see. This is the corner which gives you a better idea of what this border looks like.
 


This is just a view of the straight portion of the inner border. I love quilting these loops. They're fast, fun and add a great amount of texture to the quilt.

 
I also decided my ornaments needed a little something else.  I decided to add a little embroidery to dress them up a little. I just embroidered a little green chain stitch to the ends of the gold applique. It helps the ornament look more polished and more finished. It's quite subtle but it's a nice effect.

I have a few more ornaments to go and then I'll be able to applique them onto the table runner. I also have to decide how to machine quilt that larger border. Too many decisions to make!
