CQ continued

Happy first day of autumn everyone!
Over the weekend I spent some time on my Christmas CQ. This first picture is before I did anything to it.


This next pic shows the entire piece with the stitching changes I made.


And this last one is a close up of the changes I made. I never liked the long stretch of red here so I added the green/gold section to cut it up. The two seam treatments are incomplete now. I'm not sure I like them but will just live with them for awhile and see what hits me. I plan on putting a pretty button or something at the tip of the addition to decorate it. Maybe I'll add another of the red mints. Something to think about.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
Marcy

This looks really complicated. Do you make up the design yourself?
Looking forward to seeing your next photo.

This is very pretty Marcy. The next time you post a progress pic, tell us how big this quilt will be finished.

I am looking forward to watching this one as I have not done any quilting before. See what you mean about the big red stripe. I like what you have done.
