Hand Quilting

I'm hand quilting the borders of my Petals Galore wall hanging and am quite pleased with the way it is going.

I'm one of those persons who has to actually see the design drawn out and no amount of measuring the stencil will do it for me.  So, the design has been drawn on paper and pinned in place to see how it will look and see what adjustments need to be done to make the design fit.  Once the design fits, the marking began and hand quilting commenced.


The hand quilting looks ok but it doesn't match up to the close quilting in the center and it would be wonky looking hanging on the wall because of the loosely quilted borders. 
How about some circles?  Yep, those work perfectly and takes care of the extra fabric that is loose.  The circles also match up to the circles in the big leaves.  Perfect!
The overall look is good and I'm quite happy with it now.
My arms and hands are giving me some grief, so a few days off will help and then I can get at it again.

Have a great day!
