I'm committed to at least 15 minutes of free motion quilting each day, though I'm certainly averaging a bit more. The first quilt (and 9 of my first 10 days quilting) has been my elephant quilt (from Elizabeth Hartman's Spectacular Savanna pattern).
I began by quilting the trunk and head. Then began on the ears.
I used nested Cs to fill each section on the ear. You can really see the dimension of the quilting in the dramatic lighting of the last photo above.
Today I got started on the filler for the right ear. It takes me about 15 minutes to fill two sections. I think the first ear was about an hour of quilting all told.
On Saturday I took a break from the elephant to quilt my Virtual Vacation submission to Project QUILTING.
I think I have three more days of quilting the right elephant ear and then I suspect a filler motif in the background will go more quickly. Maybe I'll have that one finished by my next update on Day 20. You can see daily pics on Instagram @sarahgoerquilts.
