Finally, I started quilting Nicki's quilt. It took me a long time to decide what to do. Then yesterday I had the idea to check and see what other people have done. So I Googled "quilting on a BQ quilt". Love all the images of these quilts. You'll have to check it out. But lots of them haven't been quilted yet. Or they did what I did the first time and stitched in the ditch. But I wanted to do something different with this one. I did find one that inspired me.
First I stitched in the ditch a big grid to keep the quilt stable while doing the other quilting. So using painter's tape that is one inch wide, I started taping my quilt. The space between each strip is the width of a yardstick.
In the big blocks I'm going to do a square spiral. I'll show that to you when I tape that part.
