Today, Andrea has a Sew Kind of Wonderful quilt she made:
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.
Then, 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)kathleenquilts.com! I can’t wait to see your quilt!
