Now onto the Quilting!

Finished sewing Sailing Through Suez  and now have to get my head around
how I would like to quilt. Bit tricky this one.

Minimal quilting is the order of the day I feel, my initial thoughts are to hand quilt just the 
solid "strips" and leave the Rings fabric without any, I need to shop around for  four different
variegated finer Perle cotton to match up
with the solids first off.

If anyone has any inspired ideas please do let me know!!
The story about this small piece will be told when it's quilted and bound, would
have done this today but have a shocker
of a cold etc. and I'm off back to sip hot honey and lemon
and put my feet up with a good quilting book!

Good to see you're back Sujata!

I found the time to play .
I had chosen some blues and the teal fabric and by accident had that gorgeous feathered fabric laying on my cutting table. So I added the pink, black and brown and here I am with the center of a small wallhanging...
I'll add some borders and of course the feathers :-)))

I've used the layout of the windmills but made a smaller version, the unfinished block size is 4,5".

Sujata, what a wonderful inspiring book you've written !
