One of the pieces from last week's design wall is evolving into a finished piece. Here is a peek at the progress. The tentative title is Nature's Spire.

The quilting was absolutely fun and a bit of a meditative process. I am really pleased with the result. I used the Bernina stitch regulator and, as usual, it was great. Coincidentally, I picked up a new foot yesterday at a Bernina presentation at the Bobbin Case, the Leather Roller 55 that I suspect could also have have used and that I expect I will use quite a bit in the future for this sort of echo quilting.

Nature's Spire is now back on the design wall in my office for contemplation while I work at my computer. I am still undecided on the final shape of the piece so I haven't quilted the outside dark brown fabric yet. And, I am considering some ideas for embellishing. Yesterday while I was out and about, I picked up some beads and silk yarn to play with a bit.

For now, this piece will sit for a few days till I have a clearer focus. Will keep you posted.
