I'm quilting

I finally got my trees layered and am quilting it with #8 perle cotton. Most of the quilting will be the fly stitch inspired by a quilt Patti posted on her blog but the plan is to quilt some words in the tone on tone filler blocks and maybe a leaf or two.

Hopefully, I'll have it finished and hanging before Autumn is done.

looks great - excellent choice of tacking stitch to add character and a bit of color.

I like your tree & I like the tacking stitch. It's like autumn leaves falling. I look forward to seeing the words & leaves.
