Only Half a Block
Before starting the quilting I sketched the shape of the block and tried out several different designs. I'm happy with the design I chose, which is the large one on the left in the photo.
I also dug through my King Tut thread to choose the best thread for the bright melons. A yellowish green color seemed to go best overall with the variety of colors in the quilt.
I ordered this book from Leah Day's website. It is a great book! I am excited to try some of the designs. She quilts more densely than I do, or would on a bed quilt anyway, but I think most of these can be adapted for "lighter" quilting too.
I received another quilt book today that I ordered. More on that later....
