I talked about using fabric prints as starting point for quilting motifs in a previous Thread Talk post here. Today’s post is an extension of that concept. Here you see the circles in the mini borders printed on a Silly Suggestions for Kids panel:
I could have quilted the circles individually, but that meant a lot of starting and stopping. So, I just made up simple and quick swirls to go in between the circles. The result is a fun and pseudo-customized quilted border that doesn’t require marking prior to quilting. Pretty neat, eh?
When you are stumped as to how and what to quilt your quilt tops, always take a good look at the fabric prints to see if they can work for you! Happy Quilting, my Friends!
p.s. I am under the gun to meet two deadlines this week. So, if you don’t hear from me, you will know why!
