After ditching the vertical rows, stitching down the applique, and then quilting in some whimsical details, I used echo quilting to fill the remaining spaces in the body of this client quilt.
The quilting density was determined, in part, by the amount of stitching needed to secure the grass along two edges of the quilt. Consistency across the quilt helps things lay nicely.
|Securing the applique was an important step.|
A slightly denser, "fabric eating" filler controls the fabric immediately adjacent to the grass where things wanted to ripple.

The guys are framing our bonus room down on the main floor, and tomorrow it will be hoisted into place above the garage.

Okay, so we are not strictly sticking to the "everything on one level" plan. Just mostly, with the odd exception. Ha!
Since my studio eliminated two bedrooms on the main floor, this space will become a bunkhouse for our grandchildren - and they can run up and down the stairs!
