Rainy Day Spirals and LV Leaves
No, there isn’t a finish to share again this week. You can bet there WILL be a finish before the end of the month. We have an October OMG quilt to finish! I would like to ask your opinion and give you an update! First up, here is a picture of the Rainy Day flimsy that we are asking for your opinion about:
We added borders to our most recent version of the 16-patch framed four-square pattern. That is really a mouthful hence the name change to Rainy Day Spiral quilt. Here’s where we are asking for your opinion! Originally, I was going to quilt one large spiral like this:
This quilting pattern radiates outward from the very center of the quilt. A walking foot was used for this stitching with spacing of about 1/2″ apart. That means lots and lots of turning of the quilt but the stitching would consist of one spiral.
Recently, I was playing around on Pinterest and found this fabulous finished quilt and its quilting inspiration. This picture is from Sew Kind of Wonderful and it looks to me like it would work fabulous in my Rainy Day squares:
This would involve individual spirals in the 35 center squares, probably done with my FMQing foot at 1/4″ spacing. The borders would feature a different quilting pattern or two or three.
Please share your choice on how Rainy Days should be quilted! Add any comments below, please:
LV Leaves FMQ Too
Quilting on the Las Vegas Autumn Leaves quilt has commenced. My plans of using a leaf chain I saw on Craftsy/Bluprint were set aside for this “S” shape in the sashing. Here is a photo of the beginning quilting. I can’t recall what this stitch pattern is called but I learned it from Angela Walters. The sashing color is actually green – I don’t know why it looks teal!
