So I started with the small ones first ;) I knocked out my two improv table runners in no time at all. I just love matchstick quilting but had always done it on my home machine. Well, I decided it was time to try the long arm and I was so happy I did. It was so, so, so fast!!! I did it free hand and not all the liens are perfectly straight and a few cross over the line next to it, but I was totally okay with it as it just adds to the fun improv feel of them ;)
Next up, was my Crossroads Quilt Along quilt. I really wanted to get this quilt done this year as it was this years quilt along and if I don't get them done in the same year they tend to sit awhile (ie, my Star Surround is still not quilted) But I have been procrastinating it as I was a little stumped on how to quilt this. I have been thinking custom quilting but when I got it loaded on the frames I realized what I really wanted to stand out was all of the tiny piecing that I did in the blocks and I was worried if I quilted them all super custom, that you would see the quilting more than the piecing. So I decided to just do an all over curly q design to let the piecing shine. (and it helped that I wanted to get it done before the end of the year, all overs are super speedy :) But I am so glad I did because I just love how it kept the quilt looking so soft.
And finally, I put my Plume quilt on the frame yesterday . . . And you know how I love swirls ;) I quilted a variety of sizes, trying to play with the scale of my swirls and had to show a picture of the back because I just love how this red thread pops on the black and white background. Isn't that just so fun!!!
And now I can't decide if I want to keep quilting today or put on some bindings ;) Either way, it is going to be fun for sure ;)
