Free Motion Friday – Vikki’s Quilt

Happy Friday!!! I’m back from vacation and back to my regular life. Funny how life happens like that :D.

This week we’ve got Vikki’s quilt.

When I made mine I used it as a store sample on how to use the AccuFil feature on the Janome MC15000, so I didn’t get to do any custom quilting on it. So I was pretty excited to at least be able to draw some custom quilting.

1

I started with some dot-to-dot in the “X” part of the block.

2

I then filled the diamond with ribbon candy, though any fill here would work.

3

Next, I did some straight lines in the “+” part, which make a nice crosshatch where they cross.

4Then, in the background square, I went with a dense back and forth line.

5

And a dot-to-dot in the triangle spaces of the background.

That’s it for this week! See you next time!

Later days!
Kathleen.

  1. I really like seeing how you would quilt up a top, but I would also like for you to tell us how you quilt it with few starts and stops. I guess what I’m looking for is the path your needle would follow.

  2. This looks awesome! Thanks Kathleen. I definitely want to try some custom quilting and greatly appreciate your suggestion. I’ll have to play with it and see if it is something I think I can do.
