Started quilting

Well,I got the back together for this quilt, (I used John Flynn's diagonal piecing method to save fabric found here toward the bottom of the page.) I just forgot that I had to start with the measurements I wanted the back to be, not the measurements of the quilt top (so it was a little close). I played around some and came up the the pattern you see quilted. I watched the pajama quilter DVD again, and got some more ideas.

Since I've started looking at quilting as doodling with thread I'm good. I can doodle--no problem. It's when I try to make something exactly "this way" or "that way" that I go insane.

Each of the flowers I've done (there are 3 finished so far) probably took about 5-7 minutes. I only have 20 to do, so I should have this one quilted by Wednesday (she says with great confidence.)

I still haven't bought any fabric. I'm going to do my best to keep it that way. I have lots and lots of fabric, and I really want to use it up.
