I finished Christi's quilt this morning. Christi wanted contemporary quilting on what would be considered a more traditional quilt top. What a great idea! With the help of some great suggestions from my friends at MQR in the machine quilting world, i settled on a spiral square in each of the white areas, diagonal lines through the lattice and bead board in the border.
I think i captured the 'contemporary' feel. What do you think?
there is a secondary circle quilted around each of the blue curved pieces. Doesn't show in the pictures very well, but i noticed it right away and like the unexpected addition.
I marked lines for easy reference and used
I purchased this tool at Machine Quilter's Expo in October and this is the first time i've used it and i LoVe iT!
I did consider curved cross hatching in the white areas but the time involved would have run the cost up beyond the budget. I really like the spiral square...it reminded me of snowflakes. Maybe it's that time of the year??
