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
