Just some quilting

I finally got the giraffe quilt on the frame and have started quilting it. 

I have it set up in my kitchen.

There's lots of light coming in from the window. I do use my lamp though to see where I am stitching. 

                         When I am not quilting, it is covered with a sheet.

             I really like the effect that quilting gives to something that is flat. It took me a bit of thinking to come up with how I was going to quilt the leaves but in the end, I just sat down and freehand drew a leaf with veins in each pieced leaf. I just have to figure out what on earth I am going quilt in the big sky area. Maybe some falling leaves...
