Deana: Quilting another Windmiill and other things

I am quilting another Windmill quilt.  It is for my sister-in-law.  I designed it for her a few years back and me, my sisters, and Mom all worked together in a round robin to put it together.  Becky finally got the border on it and asked me to quilt it.  It is fun quilting a quilt pattern you have done before because you know how.  There is no "deciding" time.  You can see from the pictures that I still have much work left to do.





Here it a look at the back.



I also made some more blocks for my Sweet Cherry Orange quilt.  I am expecting two more blocks in the mail and then I can decide how big to make it.

I am also adding another row to a quilt my sister created for me called "Periwinkle".  Here is a sample of what I have sewn up so far.  

I am linking up today with:

Ester's WOW

Let's Bee Social

I loved reading this post from Adventurous Applique and Quilting.  She tested the fluffiness of her gorgeous feathers out on different batting.  I would like a little fluffier batting, but I don't use a "roll up" system on my sit down long arm Juki.  I baste my quilts and then quilt them.  I have to use a batting that "sticks to" my quilt.  This prevents sliding and puckers.  I may have to try some of the bats she suggested that still stick to the fabric.
