I made enough bias tape to place on block one.
I secured it, and started quilting!
Started quilting? Yep! This skill builder pattern is a Quilt-as-you-Go; my first quilt done this way! I think it will be exciting to know that with each group of blocks completed, they are done. I am still a little uncertain how they will all be joined together at the end, but will cross that bridge when I get to it.
That lime green section gave me the hardest time trying to decide what to quilt. I knew I wanted to carry over the swirls and beads from the other sections, but what to put on the rest of the piece?? I drew out several plans, even stitched one completely, but hated it. I spent a huge chuck of time unpicking my dense quilting! I eventually ended up with those arrowhead and diamond shapes, which I hope will tie in nicely with a future block featuring arrowheads.
I have several more sections like the lime green to quilt, and the inner and outer sections too. I won't be able to be at my machine for several days, so I might not have much progress to report on next week.
But it feels good to say...work continues on my 100 Day Challenge item!
As always, thanks for reading,
