I haven't really quilted panels before - but it is seriously so much fun. I started by quilting the circular dinosaur pictures, and tried to choose designs that suited the pictures. Nothing fancy, I just wanted to add some interesting texture in the backgrounds. Swirly air-currents,
leaves to munch,
and a few more pebbles.
In the large coloured squares, I FMQ'd straight lines in threads that matched the background and in the outer border I simply quilted around the dinosaurs.
I did put little hanging pockets on the back, thinking it would be a good wall quilt, but apparently it has now replaced his normal blankets and he won't sleep under anything else. As it should be really ;o) I do have another panel waiting to be quilted - my 4 year old spotted a Frozen panel and is regularly harassing me about it, so I suspect you'll see that soonish too.
PS I apologise for the lack of FMQ tutorial this week - I had great intentions, but then came down with a virus on Monday night so I just haven't had the energy to film anything yet. I'm hoping to get it done tomorrow though, so please bear with me on it :o)
