W.i.P. Wednesday: Quilting ADD

It's been really cold here in New England this week so I've been spending a lot of time in my studio where I can crank the heat up and pretend I'm still on vacation:-)  I went on a basting kick and basted 3 quilts so there should be a lot of quilting going on... but instead I got distracted:-)  It all started when I finally pieced together a back and basted this Plus One flimsy I made last winter.

It was sitting with the very last of my French General scraps and I started thinking how nice it would be to have a pillow to go with all the rest of my Rouenneries decor...  next thing I knew I'd pieced together this top.

It was really just an excuse to try my hand at Orange Peel quilting.  I did mine as a serpentine similar to this technique by I'm a Ginger Monkey but I found it easier to use my free motion foot rather than my walking foot.

Some of my circles are better than others;-)  Every time I think I'm in the groove I hit a seam and it throws me off.  Next time I'll try Oh, Fransson!'s approach and see if I get better results.

Now to make a back and add the binding and I'll be ready for tonight's Hand Sewing Happy Hour at Quilter's Way:-)
