Free Motion Quilting On Ringo Lake

No automatic alt text available.

I started quilting On Ringo Lake this week. It took awhile for me to decide just how to quilt it. I had thought about using rulers and custom quilting. The quilt is so busy, I didn't think the quilting would be seen that well. I had a few pantographs in mind but didn't think it would be the best choice. This quilt is made of so many pieces that I feel it's a little puffy in certain areas.

I'll be doing something different in each of the two borders. I'll decide how I'll quilt them when I get there. I'm hoping the quilt will speak to me!!
