Free Motion Friday – Judy C’s Quilt

Happy Friday! I now I’ve been a bit MIA the last couple weeks… but life happens. I’m trying not to stress about it. It was easter, then the Central Alberta Quilters Guild show, so I was away…. and just not into it. So no blog posts. Such is life. I refuse to be stressed out about a blog.

Today we have Judy C.’s quilt!

I have such mad love for wonky stars. I need more in my life.

1

I started by drawing a box around a random star.

2

Then echoing the star inside of this. I didn’t draw it out, but now that I’m thinking things through, I’d actually echo around all the stars.

3

Then I filled the space inside the star with a swirly fill.

4

Then, echoed around the outside of the box.

5

Then, I drew some lines extending out from the box. I sort of tried to make it look like they were extending from the points of the star. I drew them going right over the other stars, but if I were quilting this I wouldn’t do that — I would stop the line at the star (or the echo around it) and then continue the line from the other side of the star.

6

Then, echo these lines.

7

The, two different fills in alternating sections. I went with a swirly one, and one with straight lines. I want it to be very obvious that these are DIFFERENT fills.

8

I kept it simple inside the actual stars — some continuous curve in the points, and a simple “X” through the centre.

 

That’s FMF this week! If you would like your quilt to be a part of Free Motion Friday, email a picture of it to kathleen(at)kathleenquilts.com

Later days!
Kathleen
