I've been working away at my Hungry Caterpillar quilt and I'm nearing the end of the quilting phase. I did straight line quilting around the red border and loops in the blue border. My free motion quilting steadily improved and I'm excited to continue to practice this new skill!
I chose stitch an outline of the leaf, butterfly and caterpillar and then I boxed the white space around it with straight line quilting.
Here's my dilemma. There's a fair bit of unquilted space surrounding the pictures. I don't want to add any quilting to the white space around each picture if I can avoid it. I do think that I'll need to do some quilting in the coloured marbles section though. It's just too much unquilted fabric and I think that from a structural perspective, I need to quilt there. The question is, what should I quilt? I feel like I should do something circular to highlight the marbles, but pebble quilting takes so long to do and uses a lot of thread.
So I throw it out to you - what would you do?
