Back in September, I took a one day class, "Embracing the Chaos" with Libs Elliott through the London Modern Quilt Guild. I came home after the class and finished piecing my class project, picked out some backing and cut the batting and then set it aside. I needed some time to think about how I might quilt this...
I have taken a two day walking foot quilting class with Jacquie Gering and spent some time looking through her "Walk" book considering possibilities for how to quilt my project. I wanted to try something I had not done before and decided to use her "Geometric Curves--quadrilateral variation" (page 61-62 of her book if you have it in your library). I used by disappearing purple marking pen and some green painter's tape to mark each line as I quilted. The quilting lines are all straight, but it appears that some of them are curved in the finished design.
Can you see the curve?
It took one evening plus a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon to finish the quilting. I added the binding, a navy blue Kona cotton solid, on Saturday evening. We went to visit my MIL out of town on Sunday so I took my quilt with me to work on the binding in the car.
By the time we got home, it was done!
My favourite quilt holder in action!
The backing is the same aqua dot fabric as on the front of the quilt.
I am ready for show and tell at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting this week!
