Quilting, quilting, quilting!
No 'proper' photos of the whole thing, as it's about 72" wide, so hard for me to get a full shot without involving two people to hold it for me!
What you can see here is one of the diamonds that is filled with quilting.
Each diamond is 15" square and each one took about 2 hours to quilt.
I started off with a couple of circles in each square but it was pretty difficult to see the blue wash out pen on the blue fabric, so I only used a circle construct on the centre diamond, shown below.
It's just as well that my new spools of white cotton arrived, even at 50wt each diamond took at least a bobbin full of thread, showing just how dense it is!
As you can see, I just used 1" wide parallel lines aside from the FMQ panels.
Next I'll be adding the binding and the hanging sleeve before washing out the blue guide lines.
