Well, this past weekend was semi-productive. We went to Tempe Town Lake to check out the new pedestrian bridge to find that it was STILL not open. Talk about being behind schedule!
I did get some quilting done. First I tried putting sections of the quilt into my largest embroidery hoop and found that it was very tedious as I was needed to move it often. Next I tried this set up, push pinning the sides of the quilt to some scrap boards and then setting it up on the chairs (like a make shift quilt frame). This didn’t work out so well either. Currently I have it pinned really well and am just bunching it up in my lap to hand quilt.
I quilted kind of an ornamental circle thing in the center and then cross hatch designs in the center of each plate. I am quilting about a 1/2″ around each plate as well. I am not sure what design to quilt onto the border? I was thinking maybe scallops? or 4″ spaced lines a at 45degree angle? Any suggestions?
