Free Motion Trees

I did a bit more free motion quilting today on the little wall hanging of Karol at the Window - a few shrubs and trees.  It looks quite intriguing at the moment with the dark blue sky and the bright white moon.  It's almost a shame I can't leave it as it is, but the sky needs to be filled in with quilting because otherwise it will billow out.  The moon is in fact a circular sticker I put there to find the best position for the sun.  Originally I was thinking of putting in a pinkish setting sun, but now I am getting used to the sticker, so perhaps I will do the moon instead.  Such an agonising decision.  I think I will mull over it for a few days.

Thank you to everyone who has posted comments about this project so far.  This is only the second project I have posted as I make it (the first was the tea cosy).  It is very encouraging to have you all cheering me on!

This post is being linked to Marelize's blog Stitch by Stitch for Anything Goes Quilt 'n Sew - lots of projects to be seen there!

  1. This is really something very special.

  2. ohhhhh, I love it like it is too! What about using a matching thread color for the sky? you get the quilting and the effect. :)

  3. WOW! That is amazing! I've never seen free-motion quilting like that before - you have serious talent. Can't wait to see what the finish looks like!

  4. Wow! I like the moon idea, goes well with the dark blue.

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous, Muv.

  6. Muv, This is quite something, very original and full of atmosphere. Your 15 or 201 must be left to cool down as they must be glowing a dull red. Excellent. (and I do mean that) Love Duncan

  7. This is spectacular. I like the sticker emulating the moon. Looks wonderful.

  8. Oh Muv, this is so beautiful! *Applause Applause*

  9. This is absolutely beautiful! Have you thought about FMQ the sky in a dark blue? The moon will be perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  10. P.S. Could the next bit be done on You Tube to see how this wonder unfolds Love Duncan

    1. Dunno Duncan, bit scary. I might if I can work out how to strap the camera to my head.


  11. Love how thus has progressed Muv... Fantastic! I like Connie's idea of using dark blue for the sky and keeping the moon! Awesome piece.
