Sneak peek at the gecko quilting

I really wanted to finish the gecko this morning. We had torrential rain last night and woke up to a really miserable day, just right for staying indoors and quilting. Right? Wrong! Everything is so damp that the quilt won't glide under the presser foot. After a few botched lines I decided to put my quilt on the towel rail and put the dehumidifier on - and go out shoppping.

So here is a sneak peek at what I've been up to.

I've only quilted a little bit on the blue patterned fabric, just around the shapes.  It's so pretty and I didn't want to cover up any of the design.

I've added three borders to this quilt.  The red one is only 5mm wide.  I thought I could just stitch-in-the-ditch around the outside of the cream and the red but it wasn't sitting nicely so I quilted the cream border.

Taking a macro photo is the only way to see what I quilted! Ho hum, another piece of quilting that will never be seen. Just like the quilting I did on Becky's dragonfly. I really liked the blue jagged triangle thing I did on the blue border but you can't see it from the front. It filled that irregular border so well. Here is the back of Becky's dragonfly so that you can appreciate the quilting.
