...to finish machine quilting this quilt. I'm free-motion quilting this for a friend. Didn't she choose some great colors?
To stabilize the layers, I used cream-colored thread to quilt "in the ditch" (also known as "in the valley") along the on-point squares.
Then, with gold-colored thread I quilted arcs along the inside of the small and large squares.
A zig-zag design runs vertically through the quilt, in four columns. Each one will have this quilt feather vine with spirals that pop out at intervals and land in a square.
Since I'll be quilting with black thread on black fabric, I've pounced the design with a white iron-off powder. The first quilting pass will be to stitch the double vein.
