So this morning I have been free motion quilting away. (yes, I should be packing, but I will procrastinate that until tomorrow morning ;) Anyhow, this morning I have been doing swirls ;) When ever I start quilting swirls, I tend do automatically quilt a small (but not micro) swirl. I think this is because it is how I learned. When I was quilting swirls on my domestic machine I would do what was comfortable without having to move out of the range of my two hands, which automatically equalled a small swirl.
So after quilting some small swirls this morning, I decided it was time to play with the scale a bit. These are a set of matching quilts and the larger of the 2 is going to get snuggled a lot, so I wanted it to stay soft and cozy to snuggle in . . . . so I needed to quilt Big Swirls. I can't tell you how many times I had to remind myself Big, Big, you are quilting Big ;) I just keep wanting to go back to that small swirl ;)
Side by side gives you a better idea of the difference of scale ;) Fun huh!!! It was a good reminder this morning to play with scale more often in my quilting. It can really add such a fun dimension to your quilting and it is so fun to quilt ;) I really need to incorporate it more often ;)
And now, I am off to bind these 2 quilts and I promise to share more of them next week when I get back from market. That is if I ever get packed to go ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
