Machine quilting streak

I have been machine quilting like a maniac this week. I'm surprised my Brother machine hasn't given me any grief and tried to warn me to slow down.  This is the quilting design that has evolved so far in the 20 star blocks. I quilted 4 little hearts in the centre of the pink 9 patches. Then I outlined stitched (in the ditch) around the star using my free motion foot. This was trickey but manageable. Then I did the curved lines on the blue fabric around the star. That was my favorite part of the quilting so far!
While I was waiting to figure out what to do next, another quilt decided it would be the perfect gift for a wedding I am attending this week. Way to totally stress myself out!

Hi Kathy,
That quilting is amazing. I love the colour combo as well.
Good job!

Wahooooooo, Kathy! I quilted one today, as well. In fact I pulled quite a few to quilt over the next few weeks. :-)

Isn't great when a quilting design comes to you and works out so perfect *s* You'll get that gift done - I've no doubt.

You do a great job of quilting on your home machine. I was always too afraid to quilt anything very large on it. I have been quilting up a storm too, putting another one on the frame today.

I am just loving the colors in your quilt, and the quilting too. Really appealing!
