I simply quilted "plumes" or what I like to call "peacock feathers" all over the top for texture.
Thanks to Kathie's blog post about two weeks ago I spotted this quilt pattern. It was simple, yet each block had a custom block quilted. I think the quilting made this little 18" table topper all the more special. I quickly whipped up two of them.
Sometimes when I quilt on my longarm there is enough backing and batting leftover to quilt another little motif to use for a pillow top, table topper or even a runner. I've been wanting to stitch these bunny rabbits. This is now a small mini topper or could be a large mug rug. I wished I would have chosen a darker thread color so the design would have shown more. The lighting is helping to see this design on this little mini wholecloth number.
I also finished the little leftover half-square triangles quilt. It is so cute! I want it to be washed, dried and crinkled to tuck in a basket. A meander stitch would have been wonderful too but I love the peacock feathers.
