I’ve been doing nothing but quilting the past 2 days, and feel like my arms could rival a gorilla!
I went up to the sewing room yesterday morning, fully intending on just quilting a diagonal line through each block, both ways.
But never one to stick to the original plan, I thought the one-directional lines were more appealing, did a few more either side of each line, and then thought ‘what the heck’ and quilted the whole darn thing in condensed diagonal lines (it’s all Hadley’s fault!).
Most of them are straight-ish and 3/4″ apart, but I found I achieved more accuracy chalking out the lines before hand, rather than using the quilting guide attachment for my machine.
I’ve just got the border to quilt now, then I can move on to the binding.
