With Ms M’s quilt done, it’s time to start N’s. For his I wanted quilting that wasn’t as front and center. I want the trains to be the star of this quilt, not the quilting.
I started by marking circles, then I drew radius lines at each 45 deg angle. The points where the circle and radius lines intersected would mark a perfect octagon.
I still don’t know what I am going to do inside the octagons. But it’s loaded on Millie waiting to go. And tomorrow I am sure I’ll have some ideas for the quilt.
