Free Motion Friday - Amy's Quilt
Amy posted a picture of her quilt on her Instagram page asking if I or anyone else had ideas for quilting -- she likes Angela Walters quilting, and her husband likes Krista Withers, and so she was looking for a design that combined the two. She sent me a digital picture of her quilt for me to play with:
I started by echoing a zig-zag in the negative space
And then echoing those lines.
WIth more zig-zags and dot-to-dot
Filled with feathers. The open sections could easily be filled with whatever fill you like, swirls or pebbles or whatever it is you like -- but this month I'm on a feather kick.
Then, I filled the outsize of the zig-zag with some Krista Withers straight lines.
Then some diamonds echoing in the middle, as well as more echo's on the vertical zig-zags
With dot to dot on one side, and filed on the other -- again, I used feathers due to my feather kick, but whatever fill you like here.
Then some diamonds again in the center
Which i would then fill with some sort of fill (pictured here with horrible squiggles. I got sick of drawing :D)
I would also stitch in the ditch around all the red parts, and probably fill the white behind them with a dense fill.
Remember, if you want to make my day and be a part of Free Motion Friday, email a picture of your quilt to kathleen(at)kathleenquilts.com, or tag me (@kathleenquilts) on instagram with the tag #freemotionfriday!
