This quilt is one of my favorites for autumn. I love all the colors of early fall-purples and oranges paired with golden wheat and brown.
In this heavily quilted wall hanging or table-topper, I combined stencils with my version of Doodle quilting. You may recognize the fabrics by designer, Kaffe Fassett.
In the body of the quilt, I stitched an overall pattern-without reference to the pieced triangles below. This technique causes the quilting line (the Free Motion Quilting) to become more dominant than it would otherwise. Also, the stenciled motifs “pop” because of the heavy quilting around them.
In the border, I chose a linear pattern to offer relief from the heavy curves in the body of the quilt. (Read more about Contrast HERE.)
My son chose these chips at the store today. While they seem to match my quilt nicely, I’m not sure they’re for me…
It is often a challenge to chose the right quilting for our quilt tops. We will be discussing that more in the weeks ahead...
Would you eat these chips?
PS–I reluctantly admit–I liked them!??
