Tech Sunday - Using Quilt Path to Create a Custom Border Treatment

Happy Sunday!

Today I am working on a customer quilt.  She pieced a T-Shirt quilt and wanted the quilting to be reflective of her college experience.  She gave me a list of things that have special meaning to her college years.  And even set some pictures that had special meaning, like her class ring.

One of the things that is special is an oak leaf.  It is actually engraved into the side of the class ring.  I took the picture she sent, printed it out.  Then enlarged it.  The I used my Quilt Path to record me tracing that oak leaf, drew a connecting line so that it could be repeated and made into a border.
Here is the border as it looks on my Quilt Path.

Have I told you how much I love my Quilt Path?  I used to do this by sewing through the paper with my machine and then using the paper as a stencil to free hand.  This works about the same way but it is so much quicker!
