I decided to quilt a simple grid on the plain blocks of the jean quilt. Quilting the stars on the pieced blocks is taking way too much time, so I am changing direction midstream (not something I would recommend doing unless you are totally FED UP and feel sure you made the wrong first choice AND you are keeping the finished piece for yourself, so who really cares?). I am just going to outline quilt in all of the light triangles and call it good. If you look closely, you may be able to see this in the bottom block. This will cut the time down to about 20 minutes per block. I have done 4 blocks already this morning. I am much happier with the quilting pace now--I am just not willing to spend over 100 hours quilting this one.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
