I quilted the centre part with wee little circles, starting with a dark green and moving out to a cream. The segments were all quilted with different patterns.
The inspiration for the designs came from maori carvings and artifacts.
And the outer edges with lines of stitching close together, again graduating from a deep teal green to cream. I found I needed to be very careful not to catch the backing fabric as I sewed and also to check my stitch length regularly.
The next blog will be on the finishing off of my lime quilt. Keep watching this space!
