Free Motion Friday - X & + Block
Today I'm sharing How I did the quilting on the X&+ blocks on this quilt. Because I was so happy with how they turned out. I want to do an entire quilt of these blocks now so that I can quilt them like this!
This is a X&+block.
I started by marking the center of the + and the centers of the ends of the + as well.
Then I found a curved ruler that gave me the right curve (on this quilt, The Quilted Pineapple 15) and connected the corner to the center.
Then I continued my way around, making petals.
Then, using the same curved ruler, I echoed 1/4" away from the petals.
I used the same curved ruler to connect the corners of the grey squares to the center marking I had made.
I echoed 1/4" from these stitching marks, then filled with some loops. I also filled the petals with feathers.
Thats this week! This design went super fast, so I hope you get a chance to try! If you'd like your quilt to be a part of FMF, email a picture of it to Kathleen(at)kathleenquilts.com
Later days! Kathleen.
