Project

Diagonal Squares

What are you most proud of? I had to create a machine embroidery design to fill the negative space - it took several tries to get it to fit precisely and to have the required tie offs. However the quilt in the hoop worked very well and I was pleased with how the quilt turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Notice that I had to set up a mirror image of the embroidery because I had to alternate the orientation for adjacent squares where the diagonal piecing went along the opposite diagonal.
