I usually hate this part of the process, but today it went so smoothly and everything lined up and stayed flat. Whew. I was worried about that big quilt. Hopefully with a pin in the center of all the blocks it won't shift on me. I'm not sure how to quilt it yet. I kinda want to try free motion quilting, but I'm still a little hesitant. Maybe I will quilt a baby quilt that is in the works as a trial before I tackle this big one.
I started to do a pieced back. The back is a pretty paisley color. When I started to lay out the back it just looked like I ran out of stuff and didn't have anything planned. I made another whole row of the diamond in square blocks and was going to run them across the bottom about 3/4 of the way down. It just didn't match the paisley quite right. So when this quilt is turned over it is just ALL paisley. Hopefully I will come up with a good idea of quilting. Maybe I will do a diagonal grid of just straight line quilting because it is just so big. Decisions, decisions.
Ahhh. Taking a deep breath of another stage of a project complete--feels good.
Now that I have this closer to be done I guess I won't feel guilty about starting not one, not two, but THREE more quiltalongs. LOL. I'm interested in:
