So here is what I decided on for this quilt. Just a flower design in the diamond shape, one echo and a swirl design in the melon shape and a petal and swirl combinations in the print batik blocks. The only thing I might add is another echo in the melon shape, what do you think? Does it need another echo? I'm on the fence about it.
Quilting the curved lines in the ditch and the echo have been made so much easier using these curved "Boomerang" rulers. I have been using the 15" boomerang as it has the same curve as my piecing. I originally bought them for curved crosshatching and have the 20" boomerang as well. There is also a 12" one and you can find them at DeLoa's online shop here . She has a great video on how to use them and samples of how the curved crosshatching looks.
Here is my border treatment. Circles in the green and a curly vine in the outer border which is very hard to see even standing at the machine.
I'm not quite half way done and I'm starting to lose my modivation with it. Lot's of starts and stops but I really want this one done and on my bed so I just need to focus and get it done.
Here is a view of the backing. I know it is a busy print but it's the right color beige and with it being a bed quilt no one will ever see the back anyway.
