Free Motion Friday -- A Whole Year of It + Kristi's Quilt
So to start, a huge thanks to everyone who's sent quilt pictures over the last year!!! What would FMF be without quilts??
So this week, we've got Kristi's quilt.
I started by drawing these boxes into the quilt. I've drawn them right over the pieced granny squares, but I would only quilt them in the white negative space-- it's just easier to see what I'm doing when I draw right over the piecing :D
So next, I would add more boxes of varying widths inside each box,
Which I would then fill with various fills :D I don't want two boxes of fills next to each other -- two un-filled maybe, though I usually go for alternating.
I did something similar to this on my Avonroy Tiles and Skopelos tiles quilts.
In the green border I've drawn circles, but this could easily be something else... I'd use a design that I used in my negative space squares to add some consistency.
So that's this week! Here's to another year :D
Remember, if you want to be a part of FMF, email a picture of your quilt to kathleen(at)kathleenquilts.com
Later days! Kathleen.
