Quilting idea's for a quilt.

 
I wanted to share with you my quilting idea's for Patsy's quilt. 


The first thing I did on this quilt was decide what I wanted to quilt on the border.  I decided to quilt a freehand feather, swirl, pebble filler.  Now that the border quilting design was determined, I knew I wanted to carry those same designs throughout the rest of the quilt.

The other quilting design I wanted to add throughout the quilt was the straight line, piano key like quilting, I did on the outer border.



I took each block and added one of those border quilting designs to it.  My background fillers were either a swirls, feathers or pebbles.


I mixed some feathers and pebbles on this one.  I also wanted this block to stand out because it was the center block and by adding some triangle corner frames...really gave this block a different look and gave it that pop I wanted.  I used the straight lines in the triangles here.


There were two of these blocks on Patsy's quilt and I quilted them the same.  As you can see I've used feathers for the center and some straight lines on the sides. 

I also quilted a parallel line 1/4 inch in from the sides of all the blue blocks.  By doing this, it really helped separate the blue blocks from the green blocks.


..so the next time you are stumped as to what to quilt on a quilt, try to determine your quilting design for your borders first then take those same quilting designs and use them throughout your whole quilt.

  2. I think your quilting design is perfectly suited to the whimsical, playful spirit of this quilt. And it always amazes me how you can turn blank, boring, "empty" spaces and turn them into focal points with the quilting designs, the way you did with those tulip blocks. I love it -- bravo! :-)

  7. I love the way you quilt. This one is beautiful, and I love the feather, pebble, swirls. They are perfect. Your corner treatment of the center block is genius, and really sets it off. I am so very happy to see your quilting again, and thanks for the tips. Now all I need is more pics of that baby!

  12. When you did the straight lines on the triangles, do you stop and start each one or echo just a bit around the flower before heading back in the other direction?
