Really enjoying work on a new quilt.  This one is for my oldest grand-daughter for Christmas; I hope it will become a keepsake for her.  The piecing is done to an Eleanor Burns "Quilt in a Day" (right!) pattern, with a color change from rose to lavender.  But I'm very much enjoying doing the quilting.  I took a couple of classes from Bethanne Nemesh at QuiltWeek in Paducah, and I'm using her "Nemeshing" fill pattern for the center of the quilt.  I'll post more pictures when it's all done.

Love what you've done so far.  It will definitely be a keepsake.

Eric, looking beautiful.  I love what your are doing to the center, with Bethanne Nemesh's "Nemeshing", if that is what I am seeing.  Looking forward to seeing the finish product. Your Great Granddaughter will surely keep as a keepsake, I am sure she will love it.

Love it so far, Eric.  I noticed you even stitched in the ditch.

Interesting comment, Libby, to say "even stitched in the ditch."  I did quite a bit of SID on my wife's domestic machine over some years, using a walking foot.  Never thought it was anything very difficult.  Then I bought Lucius and, in class with Angela Huffman, said I wanted to do a little SID.  She looked askance at me and said, "You realize that's a really advanced technique?"  And she's right; it's considerably harder on the long-arm than it was on the domestic!

Eric;

Great job of quilting so far.  Can you share more of the "Nemeshing", and show us more of what it is?  I think in the end, it is going to turn out as a gorgeously quilted piece.

Hi, Cagey.  The "Nemeshing" is in the lower right-hand portion of the second picture.  It's a free-form, organic-looking fill based on several types of feathers, usually surrounded by pebbles that make the feathers pop out.  Bethanne Nemesh created it, has used it in several award-winning quilts, and  has a book on it:  http://www.whitearborquilting.com/store/index.html.  It's very easy to do, but (of course) the pebbles are quite time-consuming.
