In a comment on that post Frances of Fabadashery said,
I tend to quilt a stage at a time, so once I had finished the lines as you are, I take another look and see if any further quilting is needed. After the hours of stitching the solution usually presents itself. It's a delicate balance. You don't want too little, but you don't want too much, but it is looking lovely so far.Frances's approach seemed wise so I just kept quilting, block by block, all the while considering possibilities for additional quilting.
I'm not finished with all the lines between colored blocks but I knew the quilt needed more. I finally decided to add stitching at the inside corners of the larger white/off-white blocks. Not too much extra quilting but enough so there are no large areas left without quilting.
Do you go through a cycle of love, hate, love as you work on a quilt? (Maybe hate is a little too strong. Maybe it's more uncertainty or dislike.) It seems like it happens with every quilt.
I'm at the not-so-sure-I'm-going-to-like-this-quilt stage. It was so smooth to begin with -- and now it's crinkly. Which makes me wonder if I should have quilted around the edges of each block and left it at that.... I think I underestimated the effect quilting lines have on a quilt. I'm sure -- well, almost sure -- I'll like the quilt again when it's finished.
