Alyssa of Pileofabric.com and I have teamed up to provide some extra inspiration for quilting the Technicolor Galaxy quilt! Here we go with block four!
My go-to geese filler is a dot-to dot. I think it works perfect in there.
And, depending on how much work I feel like doing, I can then go in and fill the dot-to-dot. I’d usually use the same design in each triangle, but I thought I’d draw out a few different ideas. Or, random is always fun too 😀
Of course there is always plain straight lines too, if you really hate free motion.
Then, Kathleen’s Magic Shape, fill triangles awesome too.
Which, of course, I would then cover in feathers. I only drew them in the larger triangles– trying to get them to fit in the smaller triangles might be a nightmare, and besides, having the triangles quilted differently adds to the wonkiness of these triangles.
In the background, I’d start by echoing around the geese — I really want them to stand out, so I don’t want my background quilting to interfere.
The rest of the background, I could then fill with a free motion filler I like,
or I could just keep echoing the lines out.
See you next month!
