Train Tree Skirt – Quilting the center

With the quilt loaded and concentric octagons marked I just needed to decide what I wanted to quilt on it. I wanted the quilting to take more of a back seat on this quilt, but not disappear into the background.

I was really drawn to this quilt by StitchingMatters.

So, that’s what I went with. I marked triangles in the octagons. I decided to start with pebbles.

I decided I wanted to mix up straight fill patterns with curvy fill patterns. Totally liking how its coming along!Train tree skirt - quilting the center

The 3rd octagon got some free hand mini clam shells, and the 4th octagon got horizontal lines. I like how the horizontal lines end up looking like rails on a train track.Train tree skirt - quilting the center Train tree skirt - quilting the centerTrain tree skirt - quilting the centerI can move on to quilting the outside now. And for a change, I know what I want to do in this space.
