Do you ever get stuck for a quilting idea?

Do you ever get stuck for an idea to quilt a background or border? Usually, you just need a little quilting to hold the layers together, or reduce some bulkiness. Simply following the fabric lines or design often works very well.

I decided to do this on the background of my seahorse this week. It had such decorative lines that I wanted to capture them.

After I'd finished, it seemed like there wasn't enough so I decided to add a few more using a similar design.

This is not the first time I've used this technique. Last year I used the same idea on the border of Sunflower Bouquet.

And Anita used it recently in her quilt Wading Heron.Wading Heron sunset

So next time you are stuck for a quilting idea, perhaps this will work for you.

Happy Quilting!
