I had an idea in my mind of how I was going to quilt the hexies. It involved FMQing squiggly lines, just going back and forth and crossing over each other on occasion. Seemed simple to me. You can see what I was aiming for below, better seen on the back of the quilt.
Theoretically I don't think it looks too bad. But that didn't stop me from ripping it all out. For a couple of reasons. One, it was a bitch manoeuvring the quilt about in those squiggles in the limited space I trialled it in. I could not envision me managing much larger spaces with any competency. Two, it was going to take me forever to do and I don't have forever in the scheme of things.
So I tried another idea. And ripped it out. No photos available. Nor the soundtrack that accompanied the ripping. Ugh!
Third time lucky?
I'm planning on a swirly snail in every last LV hexagon. There are about 500 of them. The swirls are super quick to do though, compared to those wavy lines I showed above. Funny how two fundamentally simple designs are polar opposites to quilt. The blue hexagons have perle thread designated for them. Though of course I reserve the right to change my mind about that too.
