I knew that I wanted to quilt feathers in the border. When I finally got to it this morning, I decided that I could not quilt both borders the same. I rode my VITA MASTER, walked the dogs and had more coffee. On the walk I decided to just go with a meander and decided on the curly Q. I like it, but wish I were more skilled. The good news? I am getting better at SID (Stitch in the Ditch).
The color matches perfectly (Signature Cotton Azure) so that mistakes aren't so noticeable. Once again I must turn off the lights in the room and on the machine in order to see as I quilt. No night time quilting for me.
I plan to avoid ruler work as much as possible. I will not SID all of the HST and squares. Instead I hope I can stitch straight lines using the seams as quides in each block. It might be tedious but not as tedious as SID and will likely look better. All that negative space between blocks lends itself to large loopy feathers. We shall see.
