Moving It Forward

Welcome back it's time for another Moving it Forward Monday. It makes me look forward to Monday.  Is that possible? Why yes when I get to see all the progress everyone is making on all their lovely projects.
My move it forward for this week is my quilting progress on my wonky streak of lightening. I actually think I forgot to let you know that was the arrangement I chose for those wonky blocks. Now that I'm quilting it you'll have to wait for the finish to see it.  I started by quilting zig zaggy lines through it echoing the streaks of lightening in the quilt. But I wasn't liking how it was looking through the blocks. So some ripping was necessary. I did keep the echoing 1/4" from each seam. 
 But in the blocks I chose to practice my free motion quilting.  I practiced pebbles and swirls
 leaves, feathers, and echoing geometric shapes.
Now I need to decide if I will repeat my designs in the opposite order or see if I can come up with enough different designs to do each one different. What are some of your favorite filler designs? If I can come up with enough I may try to do each one different.

Now it's your turn. What did you move along this week.  Can't wait to see. Please remember to link back, and to visit those who share. Thanks!
