I do not submit quilts that are just quilted down with large stipples. I always put some thought into the quilting to make each of my quilts special. I did a couple of test samples this morning on this busy fabric. I know that feathers (as much as I love them) would not do very well for the super busy and bright print. And I really don’t have time to do a lot of marking… so, I look for quilting ideas from the fabric itself. I “traced” the flowers, and added the veins in between the lines that are already printed on the fabric. I think I like the effect:
[Tip for quilters: When you find yourself at a loss of what to quilt, the quilting motif may be staring you right in the face on the fabric itself. Another example can be seen by clicking here.]
Thanks for stopping by. It’s a busy week for me, and I am sure it will be many of you. But I hope you still take time to enjoy the blessings of the Holy Week.
