Skating across the border and the Olympic give away.

I am working my way through my Olympic challenge. I did free motion Maple leaf's on most of the sub-blocks. I made exceptions for the flag of Newfoundland, the map of Alberta, and a couple of the embroidered blocks.

The ice dance inspired my border quilting. I had no firm idea on what to do, not my usual vine and leaf combo though.
I have those maple leafs all across.

So, after I finish the second border I will switch to a walking foot.
The attic windows will be emphasized with straight line quilting.

I hope to be as far as binding by the time the closing ceremonies are taking place, on Sunday.

That will also be the draw date for my giveaway.
A lucky reader who has posted a comment over the last 5 weeks will win a custom quilted wall hanging - that's right.
You can choose an art type wall hanging or a traditional piece; the main colour as well.

This is to celebrate 30,000 visitors! Yeah!!

Quiltrat:
I use the Brother PQ1500S for quilting and thread play.
The stitch regulator is "the way I hold my mouth" and I nod my head to set the stitching direction. It looks quite hilarious.
