Free motion quilting the Yellow Pond-Lily quilt

I have a lovely puffy Hobbs wool batting sandwiched into this quilt. I have realized that the batting comes out of the bag very creased, so if I put into the rinse cycle in the washing machine with cold water on Delicates, then air dry in the clothes dryer, it becomes uncreased and puffy and lovely to work with.
Look at the fantastic stitch definition that is being created here. Hmm, have to work on my photos . . .
I am about 1/2 done the quilting.
