Quilting Pezzy

Been doing a lot of this lately:



I am slowly getting there.  I have chosen to quilt concentric diamonds using a slightly off center diamond as my guide.  I am using yellow thread to create diamonds 1/2 inch apart from one another.  They have gone a wee bit wonky, but I have to say I still love it!

I will say the recent post by Fiona was so fantastic for me in the planning stage.  It really had me thinking of which way to start my quilting so I  didn't end up with the whole quilt stuck in my harp.  Thank you, Fiona!

A plan is always good - not that I often do that and am prone to changing my mind ....looking forward to seeing this and the yellow thread is gorgeous!
