Moving It Forward

Christmas is this Friday, and while I have made progress on Josh's quilt, I'm not quite sure it will be finished on time.  I meant to baste it a couple of weeks ago, but my sister needed me to watch her kidos on the day I had arranged to baste it.  So I'm a little behind.  I've got the star quilted using a hook and swirl pattern.  I found the tutorial for it here.
 Next I moved things a little farther by doing a feather around the star border.
 I'm about 3/4 of the way around the rays coming out from the star.  Here I did vines and leaves.
 Now that you've seen what I've moved forward it's your turn.


  1. The quilting is looking really nice on the quilt, Em.

    Merry Christmas.

  2. I love your quilting and can't wait to see if finished! I have Angela Walters first book that has the hooked swirl in it and I have used it on quilts - not without some issues with it. It would have been nice to see the video first, but I finally caught on to it. I love her book!
