Almost all of the quilting is done on this mandala quilt.
There are some closeups. Around the inner panel here is feathers. I just did a free hand bit of quilting in the mandalas. Once I decided I didn't have to follow the lines of the mandala, they became much easier to work with. I did try to follow a little bit of what was happening in the middle mandala.
This is the quilting that I did in each of the outer mandalas.
I used no flash in this picture so you can really see the quilting!!!
Before my guests came, I whipped up a bunch of these snap bags from some fat quarters and half yards that I rarely use anymore. They were great fun to do!!
