Quilting Begins

Since I am not heavily quilting this piece, I will quilt the body of the coat before the "fur"... were this to be heavily quilted... I would work from the inside(center) outward so I'd at least quilt the front vertical section of fur first.. then the body of the coat.. then the remainder of the fur. Hope that makes sense... but here goes.  I decided I would use a simple teardrop filler on the coat  because this filler is both graceful and flexible.

One side done... It seems amazing to me still how important even simple quilting is to enhancing a quilt top.

Now to finish the left side.  Notice the central fur area is a bit lumpy... no problem as it is mild and the quilting there will be open and fairly loose.
