Free Motion quilting

I have bought the backing and batting for my mystery quilt.
I have read several books on free motion quilting
and 
I have pinned the quilt ready for quilting.
I have even practiced some free motion quilting.
Now I have to get brave and start the quilting.

Posy Basket so far

I completed my Posy Basket top for WQC meeting
Tuesday night.
I forgot to do the circle in the central flower so will have to do that before
quilting it.  Here are the photos displayed in a digital scrapbook

Elegance

The WQC 12x12 challenge this month is elegance.
This is a doily that Nanna Halberg made.  It has been used and 
is precious to me so even though it is stained, I decided to preserve it
and use it for this challenge.  I have added some brooches.  A couple of
them came from my other grandmother; Nana Mawson.
This 12x12 challenge is in memory of my 2 grandmothers.

Borders on

I went to Dream girls on Friday and most of the mystery quilts were revealed.
One was even quilted and others were at various stages.
It was fun seeing them all and amazing how different the same pattern 
can look in different sizes and colour combinations.

Here is mine with the borders on.  I am really pleased with the border fabric.
It wasn't in the sale but it was perfect for the quilt so had to have it.
Now to decide if I am up to quilting this one myself and if so how to quilt it.
It looks like it should have an all over design. 
What do others think?
