    Your photos were probably too large.

    Lynneanne, It turned out great. Thanks for the final post. I hardly ever do that. Just a bad habit of mine. HelenW

    It’s finished. I had trouble uploading from the computer but this is from the IPad. Thanks Helen for your support and thank you so much Barbara for your quilting suggestions and especially for all the time and energy you dedicate to us.

    Thanks Helen! I’m doing the curlicue that Barbara recommended and it’s going pretty fast. At least it’s getting rid of the shadows. Your Pick a Petal looks good and like all of your quilts is going to be beautiful. The scrappy is hard for me too….but it is part of the learning process!

I have stitched in the ditch around all of the appliqué. It needs more quilting in the background to flatten it. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to free motion on it?
    Lynnanne, Love the small size Homeward Bound. I would use a press cloth and give it a good press. That might help flatten it
    without too much extra quilting. I would audition a few ideas like the ones Barbara mention using clear page protector or vellem
    paper where you can draw ideas and see what they would look like. Even a medium size stipple meander would look good.
    An echo with a double echo in a few of the more open areas might look good. Echo at about 1/4 inch.
    It will be fun to have you doing the Pick A Petal. It has been a challenge for me, because I am not much of a scrappy type
    quilter. HelenW
