When I finished my 'stint' today I threw it down on the floor to admire it - always fun to see progress - and noticed that the light was perfect for for a few shots that capture the quilting.
I didn't crop this photo so you can get an idea of the size of the project
After quilting 1/4" from seams on the Mariner's Compass I did concentric circles, gradually increasing outward over that whole section, including the Flying Geese. I started with single parallel lines in the blue setting corners but it just didn't seem to be enough - so I doubled them.
The cable shows nicely in this one. You can see I have it placed it over two plain borders.
It is the section with triangles next to the toile where the straight lines alternate directions.
Here's the front showing the hourglass blocks.
I didn't want to just outline along the seams and this, though not very visible, does quilt the area down with a consistency I like. I like to do designs that ignore the piecing.
Simple X's in the checkerboard borders.
I am keeping track of my time on this one, just for fun. I use a small spiral notebook...here's one page
