I thought that because the design is simple and there are only two colors, there is space for some special quilting. And here is what I am quilting.
I spent some time drawing different quilting motifs onto this sealing wrap. A friend of mine from USA sent me a roll (the stuff I find here is not as great as this one).
I placed it on top of the quilt and with water soluble marker I started doodling different motifs on the sealing wrap. Because it is transparent, you see how different motifs would look on your quilt. It’s easy then to choose the favorite one.
Back to quilting!
Edited to add
To clarify – I don’t stitch anything through sealing wrap. Before I start quilting, I just “test” how a quilting motif would look on the quilt. Once I made my decision, I remove it and quilt as usual – only through quilt sandwich.
I am sorry if my pictures confused you!
Ooooooh! So very pretty. It will be just lovely once you finish it!

So this is how machine quilting can be done…. Wow, this is mind-blowing!! I have used Press and Seal for hand quilting designs on a quilt and it works perfectly!!

ok, if I am to understand this..you mark it on the stretch plastic…and stitch on top of it…do you do this with an ordinary sewing machine?

Your quilting is fantastic and shows off the two colors beautifully. Can not wait to see the entire quilt.

Geta ….this quilting is stunning!!!!! Your quilting tips are fantastic too. Love this piece
love it!!!Feathers are the best.
You are so clever! I totally understand that we would never stitch through the plastic wrap. What a mess that would be! I'm going to buy some today and test drive it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work again. You always inspire me!
