Pickle Dish Hand Quilting


I started hand quilting the arches and the melon shape in the middle.  I stitch in the ditch around the melon and then again an eye-balled quarter inch inside the melon.   I then stitch an eye-balled quarter inch inside all around on every other "pickle" on the arch. 

I think I have about half of the melon/arch combos finished. 

I'm not sure how I'm going to quilt the four patches or the burgundy flower sections.

Great start to your quilting. I need to really get back to my hand quilting so I can start big stitching my pickle dish.

Just a suggestion, a large X in the four patches and I think you need a stencil for the floral area!!

I love this quilt. Now that I have finished the blue Seven Sisters quilt I don't have anything in the hoop and I am missing it!
