While I work out quilting designs for the sunflower scrap I’m working on the fourth broken ginkgo quilt. I have each piece of the pattern solidly stitched on the very edges and have begun the quilting. I tend to quilt very densely — some refer to this as quilting it to death — so keeping a flat, square shape can be a challenge. I’ve been known to block a quilt 3-4 times during the quilting process. The quilt speaks to me and I do my best to give it what it needs.
My focus is on using a variety of designs, even within a single leaf, and a variety of sizes. So far, so good.
