Free Motion Friday - Sarah's Quilt
When Sarah sent her quilt last week, she sent two quilt pictures. Here's this weeks.
This is a stunning quilt. I love it. More mad Sarah love. However, I didn't want to go to crazy with this one, as there is not a lot of negative space, and the fabric is so gorgeous we don't want to take away from it. So with that in mind.
I spent a long time on the negative space. Did I want to emphasize the curve? Add some echoing to provide space between the piecing? In the end, I decided to simply fill it -- I went with scribbles, because I wasn't good at drawing today, but a back and forth design, or any other reasonably dense fill here. I basically just want to pack it down a bit to make the less densely quilted prints pop.
In the chains I did a simple continuous curve. Again, we want to prints to look awesome.
Then, in the center stars, come curved cross hatching. Even though there are technically no curves in this quilt, I want to emphasize the illusion, and so, curved cross hatch.
That's it for this week! Remember, if you want to be a part of Free Motion Friday, and let me play with your quilt (oh please please please) then send a picture of your quilt to kathleen(at)kathleenquilts.com or tag me on instagram (@kathleenquilts) with #freemotionfriday.
