I'm about 2 months into the hand quilting, and somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 done. With each "melon", I've outlined each side of the ring plus one row of echo that lines up with the points of the second piece in the strip.
I've been trying to convince myself that this will be enough quilting. The stitching is 1-1.5" apart except in the center of each circle, which ends up with 4" square w/o stitching.
I want it to look modern and fresh as it's a gift for a young couple, and am fighting my tendency to over-quilt. I have an idea for what I'm going to do, but I'm open to suggestions for the centers of these 35 circles.
