free free motion quilting....

Posted by Picasa
The sashing has been quilted - well 5 lengths between the colours - in various vines of hearts, leaves and flowers. It's all very experimental and I am enjoying the process - I'm feeling free.... freed from the stipple. The navy is quilted with black thread and gives a wholecloth quilt effect - I like it that much maybe I will try one of those next??

I have decided to quilt the blue rectangles with black patterns - some echoing the fabric and some background filler - preferably not stipple! - I think I will treat this as sort of a sampler ... My quilting has taken on a new lease of life

feeling inspired

I've been feeling under the weather for some time - but now I know I’m back - I have just started to quilt my blue quilt--- for ages I have been umming and aarghing about how to quilt - then yesterday I just picked it up and decided to start - wavy freehand lines down each of the coloured stacks and round the edge - this will give me several areas to try out different styles - just quilt as you go!! We'll see if it turns out to be a good idea !
