Finally settled on three types of quilting

I finally settled on three types of quilting for the Ruby Star Rising quilt. Straight lines in charcoal in the picture frames. Squiggly lines on the wallpaper. Diagonal cross-hatch on the pictures. This could take some time... Thank you for all the suggestions, they really helped me to sort out what I wanted to do.

  1. This looks stunning. I love the way the crosshatching frames the teapot. So cute!

  2. That looks fab. I really love the whole frames on a wall idea. So creative and perfect with this fabric.

    I have a question- when you change your quilting style from straight lines to diagonal, what do you do with your thread? Do you cut the tails? Since you are working in the middle of the quilt you can't sew to the edge then start a new stitch. I am not sure how you change gears and do something new without backstitching your threads. Does that make sense?

  6. The crosshatching is exactly how I had imagined - although you have done different scales on the different 'windows'. Genius! It's going to look stunning (actually it does already!!).

  13. Perfect, perfect and more perfect. How cool that you could diagonal line right through the little stars on the teacup print (of course I noticed!). I love that squiggly for the sashing and have used it myself before. I loved how even it turned out and it's a pretty fluid fmq design to do, right?

  17. Whew! You are patient! When I get to this point, I'm often rushing because I just want to be done. Admittedly, my favorite parts of the quilt are the piecing and the binding. :-)
