Slow Quilting Floral Triangles

Last week I quilted the 2" finished patchwork border. I'm using Sulky #12 variegated gray/silver thread.


I took a close up picture of the quilting in the flower border, you can see the green thread but I don't think you can see the difference of the greens used on the vine and the outside of the leaves.


This week I want to get the top edge of the narrow white border quilted. Quilting the edge shouldn't take long, maybe I'll start on the center section too, at least the red triangles.

You can see white chalk quilting marks on the red fabric.
