Quilting Decisions

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an update on my quilting the wedding quilt with many of my thoughts about how I should quilt the wide open (comparatively) spaces between the superblocks. I thought maybe I ought to bring you up to date with what I actually decided to do.

Ta Da!

Above is the (or most of the) final pattern I chose. The pinkish cast is caused by the chalk from the Pounce Pad that I used to mark the motif in the center there, which came from this stencil:

Now if you are asking yourself how it is I managed to come up with this, I actually started quilting the straight lines before I had any idea that I would really do anything but the straight lines, which I marked with .94″ painter’s tape.

The third round of that quilting produced a square which caused an aha! moment that sent me downstairs to the basement for some stencils to try out in the square. The chosen one is actually a favorite of mine which was used on another quilt once upon a time.

There are only 4 of those wide open spaces, although there are several half spaces that I will also need to quilt. I guess I’d better get to it!

Quilt on!

  1. Perfect! Don’t you just love it when the ah ha momens come BEFORE it’s too late to put them into action? This is fabulous!
