Jane Austen quilt, part 8: moving right along
The portion of the quilt to the left of the "empty" diamond space in the middle is just pinned to my design sheet.
While I am enjoying seeing how progress is being made on this top, it is simply tedious sewing. I am trying to keep all the short sashing segments aligned with each other so they don't look like they are wiggling all over the place. Mostly, I think I've done a good job.
I'm beginning to ponder how on earth is this top going to be quilted???? An edge to edge would just destroy the look. I'm thinking that a very simple stitch in the ditch along the sashing seamlines would be appropriate ... with no other quilting in either the sashing or diamonds.
The big diamond space in the middle is going to contain an embroidered letter.
Any comments or suggestions as to quilting?
