NEW QUILT VIDEOS!!!! Globetrotting, block 6: St Louis

I am happily working on my Pat Sloan Globetrotting block of the month I'm currently quilting St. Louis.

Here's the block:

Here's the tentative plan:

I decided to start with the straight-line quilting.  In this block, the straight lines are the stitch-in-the-ditch around the orange square and "V"s stitched in periwinkle and cream squares.  I didn't quilt the straight lines in the large light green triangles, because I am not convinced that is how I will end up quilting them.  Oh, the indecision!

This first video shows the stitch-in-the-ditch and the "V" in the periwinkle squares:

The next video shows the "V" in the cream squares.

I filmed it as a separate video because it can be tricky quilting points at the edge of a quilt or quilt block.  I tape the edges of the block with quarter-inch tape so I don't accidentally quilt into the seam allowance or under the binding.  You could use any marking tool, but after years of trying different methods, this is the one I like best.

Stay tuned for another video next Tuesday!  Subscribe to my blog so you don't miss any tutorials.
