Quilting the Quilt

Yesterday morning, I made the decision to quilt the class quilt that I had just layered and pinned. I really hadn't decided what allover design to use yet so I looked to my machine quilting books for a little inspiration.

This is the book that I found a great allover leafy design. I of course modified the design and added sweeping echoes for an even more organiz shape. here is a little sample of the quilting, I'm hoping that you can see it. I settled on a blue and brown varigated cotton thread from King Tut.

When it comes to machine quilting, I have learned that using the same thread on the top and bottom of the quilt works best for me.

I got about halfway done with the center of the quilt and I'm hoping to complete it today. Then I will move onto the borders.
