Question about Quilting

Okay the quilt I'm making for Alex will look like this.

Now if I wanted to quilt around the outside of each "diamond" that is in the quilt, what would be an easy way to do that? I don't have a longarm so it is harder for me to do nice designs when I quilt.

I think the way I did it last time is I went around the whole diamonds and just turned the quilt as I went and then when it got to where I couldn't go around each diamond anymore I just started doing the diagonal lines.

Love the colours and the layout. Simple quilting is good and easy to do. Looking forward to seeing it finished!

Andrea, this is such a pretty quilt. I love the colors too. I would recommend you do it the way you already have - just go around the diamonds - start in the center and work my way out. Maybe alternate direction in each diamond so you aren't pulling the fabric the same direction over and over again. And / or using a walking foot.
