city & guilds stuff - part 2

The next step was to slice the main piece again and insert the remaining smaller units.

Nance Crow has her quilts hand quilted, but I machine quilted mine. I haven't done much in the way of hand quilting for the last 10 years so it wasn't a difficult decision! She mainly uses straight lines or grids so that's what I did too.

After I'd finished the quilting and looked at it, I decided to do some little wavy, swirly bits in a few places.

I really enjoyed making this and I have a few ideas on how I can go further with this technique - all I need is the time coz I sure don't need any more fabric for it!
