Workin' inside out

Well, I am working on some new stuff... but thought I'd include a tip here. Ya know how 'they' used to say quilt from the inside of the quilt toward the outside??? and then some proved it wasn't always necessary. Well... when you are quilting really heavy as in the "Winter Hunt"... you will likely be happier with the result if you can pretty much follow the old plan. Start in the middle and generally work outward. example... I first quilted the mountain lion....

then moved upward, outward, and downward in a fairly methodical fashion. It is easy to get puckers in the fabric if not really careful. Good luck!!!

After the mountain lion... some cool shadows...

Then quilted snow!
