I Changed My Plan
My original plan was to quilt grid lines throughout the interior of the quilt. But the more I thought about it, the more I dreaded tying off all those threads! I still think it would have looked pretty, but I just couldn't do it. Too much time involved and frustration and stress and eventually, cussin'! Instead, I'm quilting interlocking circles, like the Peter Robbing Paul quilt block. It's free motion, no marking, so to put it nicely, all the circles are their own unique individual! Best of all it's continuous quilting! The only thread tying is when I have to put in a new bobbin or needle or the thread breaks.
Oops! As I was taking this picture, I noticed I missed a link. See the pin? I lost my way and now have to go back and stitch this little piece. I sure hope I don't find many more like this!
