Another quilt for Shirley Fraser

SFdone 005 

Dr Shirley Fraser is my most prolific customer so far. I’ve taken a long time to get this quilt finished, but it is large, & I’ve finally conquered my stitch regulator! I’d tried using it before, & could never get the momentum of it right, but I think I’ve finally got it.

You will have to click on the pictures & see the larger versions to really see my quilting, & it definitely stands out better on the back than the front.

On the outer edge I used this large curved ruler, that I bought from Carol Olson.  I used it to draw the curve on paper first, then bumped the hopping foot up against it as I sewed. It worked well so long as I was in front or on either side, but when I wanted to position behind the foot I had a problem with the peg handles getting in the way, but overall I really like them.

I want to know how to piece that quilt. I don't see any easy way to do it without having to make 90 degree turns.
