I have eight quilt tops ready to be quilted. The first was “Brad’s Quilt”. The quilting is done. All that remains is to hand sew the binding.
I started quilting on “Dancing Nine-Patches” yesterday. The plan is to quilt a diagonal grid in the nine-patches and then fill in the areas between with something else. I am not brave enough to do the grid free-motion, so I drew it on with chalk and a ruler. I am using my walking foot to trace the lines. Once the grid is done, I will switch to free motion to fill in the rest.
Linking up with Free Motion Friday.
I’d be REALLY impressed if anyone could free motion a straight line! Good thinking on the ruler. I love how this quilt is coming along!
It is definitely better to mark the lines. But I’m usually too lazy to do 😉

I love the colors you used in your nine-patches. I almost always use chalk to mark out lines if I’m doing a cross-hatch pattern. Keep up the great stitching!
