What have I been up to while I have been showing you all my friends lovely work? I have been working on this displaly for a local shop. It is my Strawberry Zing pattern done in Moda's Berry Delight.
I quilted Cherries in the outside border. I learned this quick and easy trick to make quilting templets a few years ago. You just need some contact paper or shelf liner. I use white but you can use anything as long as it shows up well on your quilt.
Draw your template on the contact paper. If you feel your not that good of an artist use a simple picture from a coloring book. Cut it out.Peel off the back and place it on your quilt where you want it quilted. Quilt around your shape. Then you can peel it off and move it to another spot. One templet can used be at least a dozen times.It was hard to see my quilting on the the green so I did one on muslin. Its a quick and easy way to do a uniform shape throughout your quilt.
