Quilt Shellie's quilt - DONE!!!

I'm not going to show full pictures of the quilt because it is for Shellie to show, but I will show the quilting that I did.

I quilting a tight stipple in the backgounds and sashing in the center of the quilt.

In the borders, I did a couple of wavy lines in the green border with green thread that meet in the corners with loops. The the outer border, I used a red thread and it matches pretty well. I hope that you can see it without straining your eyes too much! lol I quilted a running holly leaf border with groups of 3 berries sporadically quilted where the leave meet. I really liked quilting this border!

In the corners of the outer border, I made 3 holly leaves come together.

Now I need to take care of the threads and pack it up to send it back to Shellie. And I have to mark it off of my To Do list!! Woo hoo!

Oh yeah - Bottom Line used in the bobbin and Connecting Threads thread used in the borders and a Coats & Clark Star thread in the center.
