Wendy Williams Round the Garden June OMG

Here is the background I dyed for Wendy Williams Round the Garden wool applique quilt.  I hand painted this cloth with a blue in the center a Kiwi green circle and a mauve exterior.  I ran out of the dye paste for the exterior and had to remix.  My second mix was not quite the color of the first so it is a bit blotchy in places.  I was not sure if I should use it as I am not in love with the fabric.  I decided to go with it as the wool on top is to be the real star of the quilt.  We will see what happens,  I am attempting to complete the first interior quadrant of the circle this month.  This should be fun.
This stitch was created by bobbin work.  I put some Ricky Tims white Razzle Dazzle in the bobbin case and white Sew Sassy on top.  I used a 100 top stitch needle with stitch number 1328 on my Bernina. The stitch is one that emulates a running stitch.  The pattern indicates that you should use a running stitch to demarcate the sections.  I tried it on a sample thinking I would adjust the length of the stitch.  I was very surprised with the curly cue result.  I decided I liked it and proceeded to stitch.  Unfortunately I stitched one of the lines in the wrong place so I had to unstitch and restitch where it needed to be.  The holes from the stitching are quite large so I may have to add some stabilizer or something on the back.  Most of if will be covered with applique pieces so I will worry about that later.
The flying geese are all added and here is when I noticed that the horizontal line was misplaced.
 I fixed my mistake and added the wool for the tree along with stitching the edge of the green border.  I made the top edge wavy so I decided not to stitch it.  Now on to the isosceles triangles. 
The quadrants are now delineated.  Now to focus on upper right section.
