A Little Down Time

With an unexpected day off work I've finally made a start on quilting my 2012 Block of the Month quilt. It was basted a week ago but this is the first bit of spare time I've had to make a start.

I'm working with a feather design in each block using my usual tracing paper method. I love not having to mark the actual quilt.

 Stipple in the flying geese.

And a back and forth design in the stripes. 

I think I might run a couple of straight lines down the sashing but I'm not quite decided yet.

For info on using tracing paper, please see this post, and feel free to ask any questions.

Nice work Kate! I especially like the fluidity of your stipple.
A couple of photos of your tracing paper method of quilting might be handy as a bit of a tutorial for those of us who are also unsatisfied with marking quilt tops.
