There were lots of very busy fabric in this quilt, and some very slippery non-cotton ones (particularly the border fabric). I started by stitching in the ditch around all the blocks and borders.
How to quilt it? The busy-ness of the fabrics dictated something simple and all-over. So I went back to a design that I have a lot of ‘muscle memory’ for — open headbands.
