I then traced the curly queue on a sheet of paper and cut out a template that I could use to draw all the other curly queues. I like making templates out of paper because they are inexpensive, recyclable and not made of plastic. I try as much as possible not to add to the amount of plastic consumed.
I placed the template on my setting triangles and marked the curly queue on the remaining setting triangles.
And here is the quilted triangle.
All of the setting triangles are now quilted so I can move into the centre of the quilt.
My next step will be to stitch in the ditch in the blocks made of nine patches and from there I'll do the final quilting inside those blocks. And then it will be finished! I've still not decided what I will quilt in the nine patches although I am thinking of little feathered wreathes in the little nine patches surrounded by half square triangles. I'll have to do some thinking and doodling! I have a test quilting sandwich with lots of different designs so one of them might work. I'll have to give it some thought.
So what is in the garden today? Lots of bugs and flowers!
