Free Motion Friday – Andrea’s Sew Kind Of Wonderful Quilt




Happy Friday!

Today, Andrea has a Sew Kind of Wonderful quilt she made:

quiltSo here we go!


I started by quilting in these dot-to-dot diamonds, going from the points of the mellon to the center part of the center squares– this way I can use my piecing to have everything look perfect.


Then, I added another layer of dot-to-dot in the diamonds


Which I then filled in. I went with a dense back forth, becaue I really want to quilted vs. unquilted parts to pop.

4Then I added this “X” to my center points

5And then some dot to dot from the outer points of the diamonds to the center of the “X”.

6Then, again, another layer of dot-to-dot, going from the diamond point, to the inside of the “X” to the adjacent diamond point… It looks a bit of a mess in this photo, but I promise, it would be awesome 😀


Then, one last fill in those dot-to-dots, to emphasise that star shape. Its a bit hard to see what’s happening, but when combined with the filling I did in the diamond, I always want an unfilled section next to a filled section.


Then, some dot to dot in the center squares, and in the mellons, the same thing, or maybe just some stitch-in-the-ditch.

That’s it for this week! Remember, if you want your quilt to be a part of Free Motion Friday, email a picture of it to kathleen(at)! I can’t wait to see your quilt!

  1. Love your ideas. Can’t wait until Fridays for the beautiful. Do you use a computer and program to show the designs. I would like to know what those are please.

  2. This is so awesome, I don’t even have the words!!!!!

    So – I came to my senses and I decided NOT to hack off the bottom row and a half……. BUT – I will totally make this pattern again just so I can quilt this design into it. 🙂

    I LOVE the contrast of the diamonds quilted into the circular shapes!

    You’re brilliant!

  3. Do you do the actual quilting in the same order that you are explaining the design to us here, or do you find a more continuous method to quilt it? I like this quilting plan.
