I used a large variety of fabrics in this quilt: batiks, florals, tone-on-tones, modern, Kaffe Fassett, and traditional prints. They all “go” together because of the values I chose. Weeks spent a lot of time with us, explaining what to look for in our stash. Those of us that brought fabrics were helped to weed out those fabrics that weren’t appropriate and to incorporate others (sometimes from another person in the class!) that were unexpected but a much more interesting choice.
The quilt was machine quilted with a walking foot and a stretched out zig-zag.
First I quilted the vertical lines and then the horizontal. I like the texture that is created.
I didn’t measure the lines, I just estimated the spacing. You can see in the detail of the back above that the quilting lines are not perfectly spaced. Do you mark your quilting lines?
