Quilting my English Paper Piecing by Machine

A while ago I showed you the process of creating this English Paper Pieced quilt.  I started making the Ballet quilt by Willyne Hammerstein from Millefiori Quilts 2.  I had some leftover pieces and decided to make this top.  I love it!  Here's the whole top.

It was the first time I used rulers to create my straight lines (the ring around the outside.  It worked beautifully.  Though I must admit that I did NOT bust out my new ruler foot (I need to find it), so I used my regular free motion foot (Bernina 23) and my trust Add a Quarter ruler for paper piecing.  It worked like a charm and I will definitely do it again.  Though I really do need to find my new foot.  It's in a bag.  Somewhere.  With other quilting stuff in it.  I forsee a weekend task...

Here's the center.  I quilted around motifs and did simple things since there are so many seams and layers in certain places.

And the quilting form the back.

I hope you get to quilt today!
