Quilting on the Diagonal

My design walls are sadly empty today, but I do have a new project under the needle on the quilting machine. I made this little quilt top way back in 2015, and it has been hanging in the closet along with a piece of flannel backing ever since. It's time to get it quilted up and finished!

Diagonal Squares, 40.5" x 48.5"

My plan for the quilting is to do a different design on each fabric. I was even able to pull out enough thread colors so that each fabric gets it's own coordinating thread.

The threads on orange spools, both large and small, are all Aurifil. The white spools are from a set of rainbow colors that I got when Craftsy used to sell fabrics and notions. The two brands of thread seem to be close enough to the same weight and work well in my machine.

I started with quilting the darkest orange chain of squares. My quilting is following the design in the fabric. Each square measures 4".

I finished off that set of squares and need to decide which fabric to do next. I'm trying to spend 30-60 minutes each day working on machine quilting. Progress is slow but steady.

Check out what other quilters are working on this week at Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts and Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt.

Happy quilting everyone!
