Happy Monday, Friends! I hope your week got off a great start. I look forward to visiting your blogs to see what you have going on this week. I was able to finish off a quilt to send off before the weekend… here is a sneak peek of Visions of Azure:
Oftentimes, my planned quilting scheme doesn’t work out when the actual quilting starts… and such was the case with Visions of Azure. I had planned to quilt formal feathers. But in the end, I decided that I needed an airy feel for the spinner blocks, and the feathers would end up making the overall look too stuffy. The new quilting scheme turned out to be a fun way to quilt spinner blocks, and I share with you the schematic in the following.
Starting from the spinner center, I quilt a curve to about the mid-way of the long side of a parallelogram, and then round off with a tip at the top of the parallelogram, before curving back down to about the mid-way of the long side of the parallelogram – at the other side, before curving back down to the spinner center. I then echo once.
Then, it’s a matter of filling in with fillers like tendrils, swirls etc.
See what I mean about the airy feel when quilting my spinner blocks this way?
I look forward to be able to show you the quilt in its entirety. Stay tuned for details. Hugs to you all, and have a very lovely week.
