    Quilting the Asian design quilt

    Started on this yesterday after a lot of procrastination (and I kept forgetting to wash the backing). Printed out a blank of the design from EQ7 and drew the quilting on it. It's coming along....

    Is it ever coming along. I had not thought of drawing out a plan for my quilting. I planned it, but only in my head. On paper is much better. Thanks for the idea.

    Just went back to the post where you showed the whole top because I wanted to see what it looked like. Well .... Wow, does your quilting ever "make" this quilt! It is going to be a stunner for sure! Your idea about planning the quilting on paper is great. I have to keep that in mind for the future.

    It is looking great! How do you get the paper design onto the quilt? Do you do it free hand or mark it?

    To mark the scrolls I cut a piece of tracing paper off of a roll the size of the space on the quilt. Folded it into 5 equal sections to get the size of each one and drew the first two scrolls, right-facing and left-facing. Since it repeats I just needed the two. I ironed the tracing paper onto the wax side of a piece of freezer paper cut off a roll and sewed on all the lines with my sewing machine without thread in the needle to make holes. Used a Pounce Pad to mark it on the quilt. For the flowers I drew one on double thickness freezer paper, cut it out, and used it to outline them on the quilt.

    Basically did the same for the fan shape in the black but just to determine the location of each direction change. Used a curved longarm template to sew the lines. For the clamshells I marked a 2" grid and used a circle template with lines etched on it to line up each one. Sounds like a lot of work but once it's marked, it goes pretty fast.

    I changed the design for the green corner pieces because it stood out to my eye as not flowing with the rest of it.

    Thank you so much for the explanation of how you draw and mark your quilt. I'm in the learning process of FMQ and the hints that you have given me are invaluable. Thank you. Thank you.

    Love your plan and your execution is spectacular. Can't wait to see this one finished. What quilting are you doing in the center panel?

    I'll outline everything in the center and probably McTavishing in the open black areas.
