…quilted two “modern” quits. The first one was designed by Barbara Wittenberg. I quilted it with black thread and made straight lines that created some triangles. It is hard to see the design of the quilting because of the black thread on black fabric. I used the Quilter’s Preview Paper and drew with a red dry erase marker the pattern I was thinking of quilting so that Barbara would have a good idea of what it would look like after being quilted. I wonder if she would have liked it more with red thread. Modern quilting is very new to me. I’ve been watching the movement take hold here in Mass. recently. Let me know what you think.
This next quilt is called “Dimensions” by Angela Walters. I did not use solid fabrics. I used what I had in my studio. The top was made on my recent quilting get away. This week I quilted it. Still sewing on the rod pocket.
Let me know what you think….I quilted this one with four different color threads. The light green has cream thread free motion quilted up and down. The light purple is quilted with white thread in a similar fashion. The dark green was quilted with polyester variegated green thread with 1/2″ spaced lines and then a fat figure eight free motion quilted on the bottom rows. The dark purple was quilted with purple polyester thread. Although I had no problem quilting with the polyester threads and cotton threads, I do prefer cotton thread.
I also taught a “Doodling” class…..look at some practice pieces….
