Originally I was going to hand quilt this piece with linen thread. I am not a hand quilter, and one quilted vine reminded me of that. I pulled it out and decided to go with machine quilting. I am duplicating the appliquéd vines and leaves with quilting, and even popping in a few quilted leaves between the appliqué leaves. If you have not tried the Pilot Frixion pens I recommend you do so. I can just draw around my leaf template or my curvy line vine, quilt over my lines and then the pen marks are removed by pressing the fabric, either steam or dry iron works.
