If you want to skip all these you can just go with "Follow the line" FMQ :-), that's what I call it. Here is a quick video on it. I am using black thread because the outer of the puppy is black.
|Quilting on the line/around the motif|
I am keeping things simple in the outer border and using a loopy-loop FMQ and highlight some motifs by quilting around them. You can see below I quilted around the birdie and the puppy with the ball.
I hope I have inspired you to quilt the borders of your quilt and filling the blocks.
Next week I will be back with January-recap.

P.S. I am working on some video lesson on Free Motion Quilting for January. Will post them as soon as I get to where I like them. My first attempts weren't that great. See you soon.
