Globetrotting, Block 6: St. Louis (review)

I've finished all of the qiulting on block 6 of my 2014 Pat Sloan block of the month.  Whee!!!  I hope to finish this 2014 block of the month before the end of 2015.  It's good to have goals.

Here's the block:

And here's the plan:

I was never convinced that this plan was a good one, but I let it work itself out in time.

I first quilted the straight lines:

and then more straight lines:

Then I quilted some ribbon candy:

Next I quilted some swirls:

And finally I quilted some curved lines, deciding at last how to quilt those triangles:

Here's what the finished block looks like:

I think I like how those triangles turned out, after all!
