New Fabrics

Image may contain: flower

I bought this panel last week. It's a digital panel from Hoffman. It measures 42" X 44". I've seen them finished by quilting each petal separately. One panel was finished with each petal quilted with some variation of a feather. I've also seen another where each petal has a different free motion design. I'm not sure what I'll do with mine yet. I'm taking some classes next week at MQX Quilt Festival in Manchester, NH. I'm hoping I get some great ideas! I feel the possibilities are endless with this panel.

This is the backing I bought for On Ringo Lake. I think I'm going to free motion over the body of the quilt and maybe do something else in the borders. Again, I'm so close to taking classes at MQX that I'm going to wait until my classes are over before I make a final decision on the quilting. I'm hoping for some enlightenment!
