My Birds in the Air quilt has been sitting loaded on the longarm for a week waiting for my attention.

Today, I started the quilting. Here’s a peek at my beginnings.

I’m finding that the paisley or “headband” quilting design is very forgiving of differences in the widths of the headbands, which is something I appreciate. For more on the quilting, see here.  

I would love to quilt these birds in one session, but the busyness of the week ahead tells me that I will only have time for mini quilting sessions.

Still, it’s progress!

Wow, that corner looks amazing – I love all that texture. I'm surprised you can start in the corner or is it basted/ditched?

Your quilting is so pretty. I think I may have to invest in the Quilt Savvy book and keep practicing. I'd love to be able to quilt like you! Thanks for sharing.
