Dots dots dots and pebbles pebbles pebbles. I felt that the appropriate quilting for the dots quilt was large pebbles. And I definitely think I made the right decision. So the top is fully quilted and trimmed just waiting for binding, but as things typically go with my quilts that'll take several months since it's my least favorite part of the quilting process. Also pictured is my new way of basting. I got 2x4's and wrapped the quilt top and back around them with the batting floated between the two. Those and pinmoors let me baste this quilt which is just shy of 70 inches square in under 45 minutes (one episode of House). It was quilted on my home machine, a Pfaff Ambition with 50wt Aurifil thread.
Fully quilted and trimmed:
It's easier to see the pebbles on the solid parts of the back.
