DWM 4/7/14

Design floor today...

Pin basting the Dresden rows project. Trying to figure out the best way to quilt this, given my poor FMQ skills. Any suggestions?

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times - check out everyone else's design wall inspiration over there.

    Try a zig zag - point to point on your dresden portion and circles in the solid area. The circles could be the same size or be like bubbles of various sizes floating. From the picture, I can not tell if this idea would get you within the 4-6 inch quilting space.

    Looks great!

  2. Outline quilt in the Dresdens and a meander or stipple (=dense) in the brown.
    Or a column in each column.

  3. I love it. I would do feathers through the browns, and straight lines through the dresdens ;-)

  4. Hi Jan, you and your turquoise dog won the contest on my blog this week! You win one of the soap dishes in this post.
    Pick out your favorite and email me with your address. Congratulations and thanks for sharing that hilarious story!
