Antique Cars off the Frame

I took the Antique Cars quilt off the frame.

I have the binding strips prepared. I have projects all over my cutting table so I can't trim it yet. I just have too many things going on. When I get it bound it will be on its way to Margaret's mother. I will hate to see it go.

I was asked some questions about how I did this. I took some pictures to show my process, but I am in no way an expert quilter. This is just how I went about it. First I used my circle template to mark the quarters and then the eighths around the circle. Then I used my straight ruler to draw the cross hatch lines with a water soluble marker. Then I quilted the circle and the feathers around the circle.

When the feathers were completed, I quilted the cross hatch. I am sure that there is a logical way to go about this. I just started with the line that was nearest my last feather. I used the outline of the car as a way to move from line to line when it was helpful. I retraced some lines when I thought it was the easiest way to get to the next line that needed to be quilted.

Thanks for stopping by.
