Ahhh, Secret Jungle Quilt Quilted

I finished quilting the Secret Jungle quilt this week. It was pretty intense work because I outlined just about 100% of each creature, leaf, etc. in the panels.

I used the BSR foot to the Bernina 830 and at first I was determined to stay on all the lines. It didn't take long to figure out I wasn't experienced enough to do that, and that I should listen to Judy Hall at Texas Quiltworks and not look that close. Once I got that down I was able to move a little freer and get the job done.

Since it is BFF's quilt she wants to do the binding. She is welcome to it, but I suspect she will want me to sew the one side down for her.

Next thing I want to do is finish BFF's cat quilt and then I can start putting the quilt together that I am making Sis.

I'm also still hand quilting the main part of the turtle quilt for my youngest, which is easier to do now that it is cooler in the evenings.
