The other night I finally got around to making the quilt sandwich for Marc's Quilt. Unfortunately we don't have a large house so I had to move the dining room table over against the wall to create a space large enough to lay it out.
I know I bought way too much batting but my only choices were Queen or Craft size. There wasn't anything in between in stock. Oh well, I know the excess will be put to good use.
I won't say that making the quilt sandwich is my least favorite part of the quilting process but all that pining does get a little tedious, doesn't it?
So now that the quilt sandwich is made I am trying to figure out how I want to quilt it. What do you all think?
Option #1: I could simply quilt around the outline of larger circles.
Option #2: I could quilt concentric circles internally and outward of the fabric circles.
Option #3: I could stitch in the ditch around the actual blocks creating a linear square pattern.
I think I'm leaning toward Option #1 but I am definitely open to suggestions, so fire away. I do have another question, though... If I opt to quilt around the outline of the fabric circles should I do that with my Freemotion Foot or my Walking Foot? I don't want to screw this up since it's for my honey and it's also the largest quilt I've every attempted!
P.S. Don't forget to give me any questions you have for Jay McCarroll. I'll be interviewing him very soon!
