I am now over 10 hours into the quilting (I like quilting but I must admit that I am about done with this one). In the dark gray sections I used a dense back and forth quilting pattern with the lines being about 1/4 inch apart. I knew that it was going to take a while but I did not think that it would be this long (I am glad that I abandoned the matchstick quilting idea). To give you an idea on size, the outer most border alone is over a yard x WOF total area to quilt.
I am now in the middle of quilting the patterned areas with a small meandering pattern. I wanted something that would contrast with the more geometric areas in gray and meandering seemed to fit the bill.
Here is a view of the quilt back showing some of the quilting.
I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!
