Hey everyone...just a quick note about the free motion flowers from the other day. What’s really going on is this:
I found this blue fabric and I just had to use the white flowers as a guide for my quilting. It was a lot of fun and it turned out to be an easy way to make sure I covered the entire thing evenly.
This is the only quilt I’ve made using this technique but I’m definitely going to use it again in the future. I like the idea of whole cloth quilts (like my blue and pink one) but I'd also like to try it out with a pieced quilt. Next time I find a backing fabric with a neat design, I'd like to try quilting the whole thing wrong side up and see what happens. I like the idea of designs popping up unexpectedly on the front of the quilt while the designs on the back are highlighted.
Here are some other quilts I like that use this same technique. Hmmm...it appears that I really like the look of hand quilting. Too bad I'll probably never get around to trying it myself.
