It finally came to me last night. Like a light bulb suddenly being switched on. I wasn't even thinking about the quilt and suddenly....wham! there it was. Starting in one corner I will move towards the middle creating a swirl and come out of the swirl and move towards the opposite corner. Doing it this way will make it easy to continue into the next rectangle. My drawing is a little messy as I have drawn over another design which I did not completely erase.....so eager was I to try it out!
I have a design that I will mark onto the corners of the inner square and hopefully I will be able to follow the lines easily.
I bought some blue variegated thread for this while on the Quilters Trail last month but I will be sticking to a neutral colour in the creamy areas. My quilting is not good enough yet to showcase using a different colour on negative space.
Yes, it is coming together at last.....today I will start the quilting process.

WOW Cath! Your quilt is looking amazing. Can't wait to see it quilted.ReplyDelete
Brilliant idea for your quilting pattern - that's often the hardest part I think - deciding what to put in and where. The different shades of blue give such a lovely fresh look to the quilt. Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
