I wanted to post another photo of the original quilt so you could see the quilting. I did my first Midnight Stars the same way and am very happy with it. The quilting pattern is called hanging diamonds which you can see in the diagram below. Because the horizontal lines make no rhyme or reason I started with the diagonal lines, going through the center of the block, then next to the outside half square triangle, then between blocks (in the ditch) and continuing throughout the quilt.
Then I stitch horizontal through the center of my setting squares.Taking the measurements of how far apart the quilting was diagonally I measured and marked the same distance from my horizontal line on both sides not even looking at where the sewing lines went through the block.
A lot of you may not be able to do this but I think it gave my block a bit of old fashioned charm. Let me know if you need clarification.
I finished one whole side and a corner block of my Jane Stickle quilt. I actually enjoyed more than I thought I would. My photos are a bit washed out. There's not a lot to see anyway.
I decided it was easiest for me to stitch in the ditch down each side of the triangles, then do two sort of V shape quilting on the plain ones.
I'm taking each triangle as it is and just quilting whatever it calls for. I figure as long as it does the job of holding three layers together then I'm good!
It has been so much fun re-visiting the fabric variety. I cannot even remember what is under the folded and basted edge. Did I mark scallops?? LOL
