Good progress is being made on my Bird of Paradise quilt. The parallel lines in the background are almost done. I have about 1/2 of one block left to do.
Here is where my hoop was this afternoon. The sun came out briefly so it was a good opportunity to lay the quilt out for some pictures.
It's hard to get the whole quilt in and still have the quilting show. I can see some areas where more quilting is needed like the girls' skirts. I want to add veins to a few leaves and there's a vase and a tablecloth needing more quilting too. I didn't cut away behind the applique so I will likely procrastinate finishing those things until the end ...
