I finally finished one of the two quilt tops I made some time ago.
Since I used a new technique, it was a fun project and I was anxious to see it finished.
Do you remember the top? At the time I said after quilting it should look significantly different.
I wanted to use the design for a quilt with a mosaic effect (like this “Secret Flower Garden” quilt). Then I changed my mind and instead of making each piece smaller to let the background visible in between pieces, I chose to highlight the edges of the pieces with a zig zag stitch. All I wanted was to make the shape of each piece clear.
I don’t have a satin stitch on my machine so I stitched over the edges with a zig zag stitch twice – again, just to make the stitching more apparent.
I stitched for the first time only through the quilt top. Here are some “work in progress” pictures.
Then I made the sandwich and I quilted the entire quilt. Finally, I doubled the zig zag stitch. Yes, I used the walking foot a lot! And I even loved it!
It was a FUN project!
