Merry Christmas & Cherish Nature - Part 7

Merry Christmas Everyone.  I hope everyone had enough time to get ready for the holidays and now there will be time to enjoy it with friends and family. 

Yes its been awhile since I have posted but in part that has been because the quilting on the Cherish Nature quilt has gone slowly.  It is mostly finished as of today, but I may have to do a little bit more around the inner border of the panel and I still have the binding to sew on.  A few weekends were taken up getting shopping and baking done for the holidays and then this past weekend I came down with the flu bug.  Thankfully I did take a couple of days off of work, rested, have recovered and all is good.

So here are some pictures of the quilting that has been done on the Cherish Nature quilt.  I'm not sure how well this shows here, but I quilted all around the eggs and in the pieced border there is a stylized symmetrical feather like pattern.  I have another shot from the back that will show the detail a bit better.

Then this picture is part of the Cherish Nature panel and I quilted around the lettering and the eggs.  Below that where you see the small green squares is the inner border of the panel and that is where I'm going to need to do a bit more quilting.  I think though I will first go and get the binding attached and then come back and see if I have any ideas of what to do in that inner border area.

So for those who celebrate Christmas I wish you a very merry and safe Christmas.  Happy holidays to all and please drive safely and keep well.

This is beautiful. I love the colors and the quilting. It's also very unusual. You should be proud of yourself! Merry Christmas.
