Next, as you can see below I quilted everything but the area that I wanted to poof out. Below you see I quilted the green areas of the tree. I put a few pieces of batting in the picture, so you can see the kind I used for this technique. Next I quilted in each pear. I used a different freehand quilting technique in each pear. It was lots of fun!
And speaking of a phony...
The Purse Dog is not just a darling little pet, as you might think. She's really a SUPERHERO! (My BabyBoy made this picture for me.)
