My Box of Chocolates quilt is basted and ready to quilt.
There are many possible design patterns in the quilt that really draw your eye around the quilt and I don’t want to lose that with the quilt design. If I quilt the same design in any one pattern, then your eye may rest on that particular pattern and that may be the only pattern your see.
Here are the possible patterns I see in the section of the quilt below:
Squares with a center quarter square triangles surrounded by a “border” and this is the square that inspired the name.
I don’t want my eye to rest on any one pattern, so I have “tested” a quilting pattern by using a basting stitch before committing.
This quilt pattern will require a lot of starts and stops as well as turning unless I decided to free motion my straight stitching. Not sure if I want to do that.
What are your thoughts?
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
