I have started quilting on Blog Quilt #3 - I really do need a title. Perhaps something about thread thickness? I don't know. Let me know if you have any brilliant thoughts.
Since the quilt is very colorful, I wanted to make the quilting quiet, but I still wanted to be able to see it. So I chose a thread that was a slightly darker gray than the background color. It is a 50 weight Aurifil Cotton thread.
I decided to quilt all sorts of circle motifs in varying sizes and fills. Sometimes I did a circle, or a swirl or other motif inside the larger circle. I also decided to do some feathers between the arcs because I actually find them easier to do than circles in that small a space.
Here is what I have done so far. Hopefully I'll be able to finish this weekend!
