Ok, I lied. I'm going to break the ending up into two posts. So today we'll quilt and next Wednesday we'll bind and be done!
To start, pick a point where six pyramids meet, somewhere in the middle of your quilt. With a walking foot, you're going to quilt one third of this intersection. Use the edge of your foot and the seam as a guide. The line below indicates where I started quilting. I followed the seam down from the top right corner until I reached the seam at the center of this third. With the needle down, lift your presser foot and rotate the quilt to follow the next leg.
Now you can go back to where you started and use your first line of quilting as a guide and fill in the rest of this "third".
When you reach an area where your quilting line is close to another seam, you can use that as an opportunity to straighten your quilting. You're going to get off a little bit, that's okay. You'll have lots of chances to gradually straighten things out.
After you finish that entire section you can move on to the other two, like so:
When all three sections are complete I choose to stitch in the ditch just on those three legs that you used as your initial guides. It won't make much of a difference on the front of the quilt it will keep you from having a gap in the quilting when you look at the back.
You can find the rest of the quilt along at the following links:
