I am finally done with Lyn’s beautiful and colorful modern quilt. Lyn is one of my quilting friends, who taught me to improve my binding technique, so I wanted to do a nice quilting job for her in return.
Here is the quilt hanging on my dining room table:
For Lyn’s quilt, I wanted to maintain the visual impact of her colorful quilt, yet provide some interesting texture quilting in each colored block area. I achieved this by using some freehand quilting designs of my own, also using some commercially purchased quilting designs, too, and finally, in some areas, I designed and digitized my own quilting designs , too.
In the image above, feature digitized quilting designs by a variety of designers, including one by Krista Withers in the blue area, this design by Jodi Robinson in the gold area, round pearl sashing in the light blue area by Jessica Schick, and the two designs in the red area are as yet to be identified. I promise to edit when I find the designers for proper credit.
The photo above shows you a wider view of this quilt. My eye was drawn to the red space with my sprocket design as it is was “poofing” up in the bottom left hand side, then I realized I had forgotten to stitch-in-th-ditch that block, so the quilt went back on my table to fix. An easily correctable oops. My fix makes the seam lay down nicely, as shown in this photo below:
I hope you enjoyed following me as I quilted Lyn’s quilt. I am happy with the finished quilt, and know Lyn will be, too. It lays very flat, so I was able to maintain my quilt sandwich tension correctly as well. This means the quilt should hang very straight.
I have already started my next quilt, a lovely wallhanging for Teddie. I promise to show you her lovely quilt when I am finished. Meanwhile, have fun with your quilting projects! Carla
