I did straight line quilting on the blocks and then did some free motion leaves on the borders. Here are a couple of close ups of the quilting.
|Just some simple straight line quilting using my free motion foot.|
|You can see that I drew the leaves on and then true to form did not follow the drawing :) Love how the quilting really stands out on the border.|
|You can see (kind of) in this picture that the leaf on the outside border is a little different than the inside border.|
I used wool batting for this quilt. Those of you who read my blog regularly know I am a fan :) I have only made a couple of quilts in which I did not use wool. It is so wonderful to work with and I just love the extra loft it provides.
Now that I have blogged about all of my pre-blog quilts I had better get moving ;) I have nothing to fall back on anymore LOL I have been quilting the Fractured Log Cabin quilt all week. . . it really should not be taking this long. I think I have spring fever or something. . . I can't keep my butt in the chair and just get 'er done! I also have the triangle quilt top hanging on my wall patiently waiting to be quilted. I have big plans for the quilting on it. . . most of the time spent away from quilting the Fractured Log Cabin has been spent scouring the internet for ideas for quilting the triangle quilt!
One more thing - you seriously have to check out this tutorial. It is an AMAZING tutorial done by Preeti over at Sew Preeti Quilts to make Boston Blocks out of 4 patches - I'm not kidding!! Remember the headaches I had with this quilt:
Not only would this tutorial have made it SOOO much easier - there are about a bajillion different ways to lay out the resulting 4 patch HSTs!! No really, you have to check it out!!
OK, back at it for me! Linking up with Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday! Head on over to get a major dose of inspiration! If you are here from there, welcome!
Until next time, keep on quilting!
