building blocks

20170509_143211I’ve quilted the main portion of the quilt and now I’m on the corners which are just big open spaces.  I’ve spent a couple of weeks trying to figure out what I was going to put in here.

It’s definitely not done yet; in fact, I’m not even done with one of four corners yet.  I spent time yesterday trying out all sorts of different stencils that would work well together.

20170509_143154Dividing spaces is still a challenge for me.  I  quilted the pattern that will go next to the edges – it’s not in this photo but it’s a rope design.  And then I quilted the open half diamond shapes shown at the bottom of this photo.  Now I’m quilting down the filler between those with alternating squares.  Scribbling in those squares takes about 4-5 minutes each so I did make a lot of headway yesterday – but when I got to the end of the day and realized how much more I had to go, I wished I had divided the space again with a separate filler.
