I have been putting this off as I couldn't decide how to quilt it. But in the end I chose very simple quilting, not too dense so that the quilt will be nice and soft when finished.
I just bounced around the red squares (freemotion), then stitched in the ditch around the outside of the star. For the background I decided that loopy loops would work.
The quilting is not perfect, but I like how it's getting better. Freemotion is really about practise, and I have to remind myself that it takes time. I do like what I'm doing, and I'm enjoying it! And that's what quilting is for me. Having fun and making stuff, not creating perfection.

When I took these photos off my camera, I also found these from last weekend. They are of the R Tucker Thompson sailing boat. It sailed from Onerahi wharf to Little Munro Bay last weekend. Hubby was disappointed that all the tickets had been sold before he heard about it, so we didn't sail. But we did go and see it off. I was pleased we didn't go that day as it was overcast with rain threatening as you can see from the sky. Not like this weekend it is so sunny it feels like Summer and not Spring.
