Karol at the Window - The Second Stage of Quilting

This is the latest stage in the wall hanging of Karol at the Window - the second layer of wadding needs to be quilted.  The quilt is now a proper sandwich, with a backing and wadding.  I have had to do a second line of quilting around the outline, again using the Singer 15K hand machine, with the hinged cording foot.  I always have the foot set to the right hand side of the needle.

Here is the hand with the second line of quilting finished.  I have used a dark colour that will not show up against the background.

The next stage was free motion quilting the background - just a simple infill of parallel(ish) lines to represent the snow outside.

I am going to use a few different coloured threads so the snow outside doesn't look too monotonous, which is a good excuse for a quick shopping trip this afternoon.  Anything to put off quilting the tiny little spaces between the fingers...

Linking up again to Leah Day's blog for Free Motion Friday - lots of other projects to see there!
