I finished up a quilt for a friend’s daughter who is turning 9 (which means my oldest will be turning 9 too—not ready for that yet). This marks the first quilt I’ve quilted on my longarm with more than one design. Usually I do an allover meandering pattern, probably the easiest way to quilt something for me. Finally I felt experienced enough to dare something more complicated on my new machine.
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and this quilt is so busy that it’s really forgiving when I made a mistake.
Loops are really stressful for me because I get discouraged when they aren’t uniform. This time they were much better looking.
I also quilted flowers in the center of the blocks. I changed this photo to black and white because in color the stitches are really hard to see on the busy background. (Which is nice because mistakes are harder to see!)
The sun is finally out after a few non-stop days of rain so photos of the finished quilt to come soon..
Linking up to Fort Worth Fabric Studio today. Have a nice weekend!!!
