Zigzags and chalk

It’s been fun trying out different simple border quilting options for the quilt on the frame – my favourite “tryout” method involves lots of chalk lines and standing back, brushing the chalk lines out and making more, standing back …  You get the idea.  And sometimes it’s hard to do simple!  And just how simple can you get?  So far I’ve considered single cables, squares on point, lined twist, and now the game has moved on to zigzags.  This seems to be the most comfortable visual fit to date so the first section has been marked up (more chalk) ready to go.

The marking was made even easier by adapting an existing template (top of pic) with masking tape to give a guideline.  The next round of quilting begins right here!

The Friendship Star and Nine Patch top that was a mini Mystery for my locked down handstitching students is now complete and ready to move on to the quilting pile –

and more quilting choices to be made.  Top candidate at the moment is Baptist Fan – we’ll see!
