Playing with Mckenna Ryan

I have started quilting on a customer quilt, Wendy Trasky’s “Coming Home” by Mckenna Ryan.

I love Mckenna’s patterns, they are such works of art. This quilt is going to belong to Wendy’s son, so I am going to try & keep the quilting masculine, & in keeping with the pattern. In the first border, I am doing bushy leaves, & a few bear footprints.

On the right hand corner, near the big fish I’ve put a little river in the quilting.

This is going to be a fun quilt. It will also be interesting to see how I end up doing the next quilt, that Wendy’s daughter Tracy made. It’s the same pattern, but a little different colors. I’ll talk to Tracy to find out more, but I think she made hers for herself, so I will likely do the border completely differently for her, than for her brother. Something a little more feminine. I have ideas swirling in my brain……

Hi Deb,
I'm very interested in how your process will go on this. I have a McKenna quilt that needs to be quilted but am wondering about all the raw edge fusingI did.(I'm not going to quilt it myself). Are you going to outline all the fused components or just stitch over the whole of it?
I'd really love to know. Please share a few more photos as you go along, pretty please
