Slowly -

But surely -

It all comes together - ;))

I was going to mark some quilting baselines using a blue marking pen -

But then realized that they would be hard to see on a quilt this large -

So I switched and used blue painter's tape to mark my baselines -

Knowing that I probably couldn't sew many AWESOME lined-up seams - LOL -

I opted instead to lay the tape out in sweeping gently curved lines -

Making sure to stay clear of the re-pinned UNSEWN part of the AWESOME seam -

Since I don't want to get ahead of myself -

And start quilting before I stitch it closed - LOL - ;))

I'll stitch to one side or the other of the tape -

And once the baselines are stitched -

I'll remove the tape and quilt one section at a time -

Echoing the baseline with lines about two inches apart -

Then I'll go back and stitch another line down the center of the echo lines -

That somehow sounds easier than trying to stitch a line every inch or so -

And I should be able to accommodate variations in the width of the sections -

The echo lines should stabilize it quite a bit -

So that I can remove the pins as I go along -

At least that's the plan - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

What a great idea! I'm just getting ready to quilt a very large quilt (I have just a simple home machine) and thinking about how to manage the volume and still do something interesting. This technique would work! Thanks for the idea.

It certainly looks like you have a good plan in place. I am sure it will take some time to get it all quilted but it will be FINISHED!
