Sweet Spring Baby Quilt - Progress Report

I've made some progress on the quilting of the Sweet Spring Baby Quilt, although I still have a distance to cover.  So far I've used Fil-Tec Bobbinline thread for a bit of stabilizing, some turquoise Madeira thread I've had for years for some of the quilting, and Fil-Tec Glide in pale orchid, medium orchid, and some white.
I've quilted on both the Necchi BU treadle in my living room and the Singer15-88 treadle in my sewing room.



 A bit of the back:
 Sweet Teen, who is on spring break, and I made a stop at Busy Bee Quilts in Edgewood, where I succumbed to the temptation of a yard of pale orchid 1930's style fabric, and some fatquarters that will go into at least four different projects.  I also purchased a Pigma Pen so I can get the writing on the Robin's Nest baby quilt.
And the surprise vintage goody in the mail [apparently sitting in the local post office since last Friday when, for some reason, they failed to notify or gave the notice to some other customer, was a pillowcasewith white and pink crocheted lace.
We have a sunny day here east of the Sandias with a couple of windows open.--I'm hoping we don't get our usual high winds in the afternoon

I'm linking to Connie Kresin's Quilting by the River,
and to Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story

Happy quiltmaking, all.....

You do a really great feather! It heartens me to know you did that on the treadle, though I couldn't match it on the Viking I have. On a longarm, though . . . . =)

Your curves are so nice. You must have a lot of treadling experience!
