Quilting Celebrate

How should I quilt the wonky letters?

Quilting to secure the fusible applique.

I added a few birds and butterflies for interest.

Quilting on the open spaces. I had some difficulty getting the free motion quilting set up, until I realized that one of my free motion / darning foot works and the other one didn't. I wonder if this has been the problem all along. I'm so glad I figured it out though!

P.S. I am adding this to the 15 minute challenge,because I do work in 15 minute increments. A lot of times 15 minutes is all I do, but sometimes I surprise myself and add another session or two.

There are so many things I like about this quilt - the colors, the layout, the applique, the quilting--this is great. I'm a big fan of orange and purple. If I would me I'd just outline those letters in the border as they are large and close together and quilting around them should be just fine - jmo.
Congrats! and thanks for sharing your eye candy on Applique Thursday

I think this is a fabulous quilt! And what an awesome idea to have a 'celebratory quilt'!! I have an appliqued banner that says Happy Birthday and that's it. Time for a quilt, I'd say..and if I ever make get total credit for my motivation :)
