A detail pic - if you like the quilting I did in the block, scroll down to the bottom of this post, there are two videos showing how I did it:
Oh, about the videos. Well, my friend Natalie was over, and she was looking at the quilt. When she asked about my travel path I showed her. She then proclaimed that I was a genius at finding the fastest path through a block and/or across a quilt. Well, I don't know about all that, but I do like to find the path with the least start/stops. So I decided to do a video of my path. Each block takes me 10-12 minutes to stitch. I ended up doing two videos -- one time lapsed which runs about a minute and a half, and one hi-speed video which runs just under three minutes. Some people found the time-lapsed version jumpy. And yes, I know it is hard to see -- it is white thread on a white background, but you're concentrating on the path, not the stitches.
Video #1 Time-Lapse version
Video #2 Hi-Speed version
So, check out the videos, watch how my brain works in creating the best path through the block, and let me know which one you prefer.
