Quilt Marking & More Progress
My apologies to the non-hand quilters as you must be horribly bored seeing yet another picture of the same quilt that still isn't finished. This shot is for the handquilters who will appreciate that I spent my entire long weekend snuggled under this nice warm quilt avoiding our single digit (F) cold weather and finishing the corner that is in the upper right of the photo. I think I may be able to claim 3/4 done of the main quilt, then it's time to move on to the far less complicated two borders.
Thanks to all of you who left lovely, brief supportive comments on the previous posts.
The other question that I've been getting a lot is about how I marked this quilt.
I don't worry about being too precise on these detail grid lines as I can easily adjust a bit. When I first started I was really worried about the ending diamonds being the same size. Now I realize I'm the only one who might notice...and that variation really does give the overall quilt a little more character.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
