Quilting Conundrum: SOLVED

I am working on a mini quilt for Bee a {Modern} Swapper.  When I showed it to you a couple days ago, I had finished the top, but was debating about how to quilt the part around the bird without quilting over the bird.

Then I saw this mini quilt on Flickr, and I knew that was just what I needed to do!  Swirls!  I love that there is such an array of creativity and talent online that can inspire.

So, swirls around the bird, plus some lines echoing the wing and tail.  Sierra declared the quilting looks like wind.  She also asked me what foot I used to make the swirls, which is AWESOME that question would occur to her!

I did a chevron pattern with the quilting in the outside of the quilt, plus another swirl in each corner to carry that pattern to the outside.

I’m going to link up with Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday this week.

Though, this still needs binding, so it’s really Thank Goodness it’s (not quite) Finished Friday Saturday.  ;-)

Speaking of TGIFF: Guess who’s hosting next week?  Oh yeah, ME!  Think I finish this bad boy by then?
