I've finished big stitch hand quilting on all of the "flower" parts of my super-sized Flowering Snowball quilt.
And now it's time to work on the "snowballs".
I couldn't decide what to quilt in the snowball sections. I originally thought I would add some simple circles. After all...more complex quilting designs don't show up very well with big stitches. But then I thought maybe a flower would be nice in the snowball sections. I almost, almost went with the one on the right...
...but finally decided to go with a vintage template from a box of old quilting things my daughter found long ago at a garage sale.
The flower may not show up all that well with the big stitching but I think it will give me just the right amount of poofiness in those areas after the quilt is washed.
(Speaking of snowballs...I awoke to eight inches of snow yesterday morning.)
I'm joining the other Slow Sunday stitchers at Kathy's Quilts for a virtual sewing bee.
