Making My Quilt Map


I can't wait to start quilting this quilt! As you can see, I had a helper when I pin basted it last week! The problem with this quilt is that there are so many ways to quilt it. I've been searching Pinterest, quilt sites and all my books. I do believe deciding the actual quilting patterns is the hardest step.


I made a copy of a generic block from the quilt. This is the version I think I'm going to end up quilting. I probably won't finalize it until I actually sit down and quilt it. I may change a few things once I begin the quilting.


Not sure you can see this too well. I made a mock up of a block in the quilt by just sewing the seam lines. I actually quilted the made up block. It's pretty true to the drawing above it. The only thing I added was a feather where the next block begins. 

I'm hoping to start soon and will post pictures!!

  2. Great idea to sketch out the quilting, and also to mark our a block with stitching lines. Never would have thought of that technique, but I can see what a big help it is.
