To start off I wanted to stitch in the ditch around the inner border. I hate stitching in the ditch because I am not very good at it, but recently had seen either a post or a discussion on using your blind hem foot to aid in staying in the ditch. I can't remember where I read or heard it but decided to give it a try.
After I had the inner border quilted on either side, I wanted to use a small curve around all the edges of the cream and wanted them to be similar in size and look. Since I hate marking, I used a small piece of Tiger Tape to mark the center of each curve and the size from the edge I wanted to go in the block. This small piece was moved around the quilt and was still sticky enough to hold on all the way to the end,
And although they weren't perfect curves, I didn't have any marks to remove either!
Now to quilt the inside of the leaf. I free-motion leaves and swirls using a variegated thread all over the leaf.
The quilt is done and now hanging at Stitch 'n Sew Fabrics.
