Of course I am more than happy to share… here is the basic makeup of the motif.
You will notice that I don’t go straight into forming my petals after I start with my curly-Q. I add a little curly nubby thingie before going for a serious petal. The reason I do is because I feel like after I quilt the nubby, I have a better handle on moving on to the petal. I also find it adds a bit of interest to the overall look.
So, you start building up clusters of floral motif…
And you keep quilting until you fill up a designated space, and find out there is spot that is glaringly empty. What to do?
Just start again and quilt the motif to fill up the space (shown in orange). I find that I do have to do that from time to time — I would miss a spot when doing free-hand and unmarked quilting, due to the poor visibility resulted from quilting with a domestic machine.
See? It’s pretty easy peasy, right? I hope this makes sense to you. Thanks for stopping by – happy quilting, dear Friends!
