I gave a lot of thought to which quilting design to use. On Tree #3 I did spirals, mostly because that's what Susan Carlson does in her Serendipity Quilts book. I thought the spirals were too challenging, between the snippets falling off and the difficulty of seeing what you are doing, giving the mish-mash of many prints. And then, when you are done, the design hardly shows! The snippets themselves are so busy. See what I mean?
So for these reasons I'm trying a variation of stippling that I think looks like bark for the tree. I haven't made up my mind about the background yet.
Here's a closeup:
Another benefit of this design is that it goes so quickly! I'm linking up to Off the Wall Fridays and the Free Motion Quilting Project.
