For the last night of class when I teach machine quilting I’ll have the students bring in a quilt to have me quilt for them. This helps each of us begin to see the possibilities of how the actual quilting will work with a piece. Occasionally one of my students will have me quilt for them. This is one of those times.
One Block Wonders are always individual quilts and have unique personalities. For this quilt I quilted each hexagon individually with MasterPiece red on top and SoFine! gray on the back. The effect is very subtle and very detailed.
I realized at one point that because of where I started marking the circles they weren’t going to match up at the bottom of the quilt. So I started quilting these lines. They were a lot of fun and gave me a break from going around and around and around. In the middle of the lines I took the stencil and marked one more section of circles, quilting a portion of this in red.
The gal loves this section because for her it fixed a problem.
This is one of my favorite parts of this quilt. I love how this pops and floats on the quilt. I chose to use Superiors Metallic here for a little bit of glitz and glam.
This is almost a full image of the back of the quilt. She used left over fabric and
hexagons that didn’t make the front of the quilt. I love these kinds of back as they’re as interesting as the fronts. You can really see here how heavily I quilted. I had such a great time.
She loved the quilt.
