I always really enjoy using a freemotion style of quilting on my quilts (when I'm not enjoying hand quilting with perle 8 thread that is!!), and this was no exception.
I love the organic look to the quilts when you just put them under your machine needle and make lines and zig zags, crosses and a little stipple stitch without marking it all out first. It feels like doodling with a pencil except you are doodling with needle and thread (funnily enough, I'm pretty hopeless at doodling with a pencil!). Instead of changing thread colour for each different coloured fabric, I chose a light tan Rasant thread for the entire quilt.
Nice, slightly wobbly, character lines I like to call them! (which is what I'm calling all those extra lines I see when I look in the mirror these days!!).
I used the fabric I had leftover from my Wonky Star Quilt for the backing. I cannot get enough of this fabric I just love it!
The black and white polka for the binding frames the quilt beautifully.
Remember the brown and pink Japanese x and + and o quilt?
That is next to be quilted, but for that one, I am going back to the perle 8 thread and embroidery needle! I wonder if I can get that done in a week?!!!
