Quilting in Progress

Wendy asked what free motion quilting projects we're working on.  Here are three that are on my table right now.

I've been quilting

On the left are a pair of large pillow covers with the quilting complete.  Nearest the machine is a project made from selvages that I plan to work on today. In the background is a a very, very old project, a throw that is now backed and pinbasted and ready to quilt.

Here are some detail photos of the quilted pillow cover fronts--front(finished) and back(with only the star element completed).  As I was quilting these, I thought that they're not exactly "feathers," more like amoebas on a string.  I drew the main curve (string) on each half of the Split Star blocks, but everything else was completely unmarked FMQ--my favorite way to quilt.

I just came through from your comment on Wendy's blog. Your projects look great. I like to quilt that way too, have an outline and then freehand within - I seem to be hopeless at getting it flowing when I have to stick to the lines!!

What will the selvages become? People make amazing things from selvages.

I love the split star blocks and the quilting you've done in them!
