Here’s my finished OTR top. I’ve sandwiched and pinned the middle and it’s ready to quilt. I’m trying the quilt as you go method so I’ll add the borders after the middle is quilted. I’ve got my flying geese for the border already made and joined together. Just waiting for the top to be quilted.
As you can see, I used controlled scraps. All browns, golds, dark reds, blacks, with a few dark blues and greens thrown in. No new yardage in the top. I’ve got a nice variegated thread in the same colors as the top.
Now I need ideas how to quilt this top. Should I meander, use a grid, a cross-hatch? This is the part that slows me down. Deciding. I know there are no quilt police looking over my shoulder.
Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear your ideas or how you quilted your OTR.
