|Quilting Detail On the Back|
My finish for this week is Jelly Belly. As I mentioned last week, this was made with a jelly roll, as well as some white from my stash.
For the quilting, I did loopy loos of different sizes. Once again, I found it more challenging to do larger quilting motifs than small ones -- I definitely need more practice! In the white strips, I did some loop twists (?) and in the triangles, I alternated with some designs that give it an art deco feel. I'm sure someone has named these designs, but I don't know the names.

I had hoped to use white, with the remaining triangle scraps, but it was clear that whichever white I used, it would look off on the other side. One option I thought of what to do scrappy using both whites.
Then I thought about channeling Rita of Red Pepper Quilts -- WWRD (What Would Rita Do)? Maybe a black and white stripe? Fun! I think it works, even though my camera wouldn't take a proper close up photo of the stripes.

I've made that same mistake with whites, I now label my solids (especially whites!!) so I know which is which! Can't believe I'm the first to play today, I've been waiting for this! :DReplyDelete

Hi! I love your quilt and quilting. I'm still trying to summon up the courage to try some FMQ. Also, thanks for hosting the linking party, linking today for the first time - glad I found you :)ReplyDelete
I like you quilt and the quilting looks great! Love the art deco pattern in the triangles. The black and white binding is perfect. Recently I bought a black and white stripe to use as a binding, too. (Also because I like Ritas style) :-)ReplyDelete
Awesome quilting!!! I love how the strips are from top to bottom. Great idea. I just finished a little table topper. Have a tree skirt for us cut out. Hope fully next and that is it for Christmas. Of course i have visions of projects old and new rolling around in my head. Love your blog. Have a great Christmas. We are still hoping for a bit of snow here in NS.ReplyDelete
this looks great! I agree - the larger motifs can be a lot harder to quilt out. We're doing jelly roll races at our guild meeting in January, and I'm going to borrow some of your quilting ideas! Thanks!ReplyDelete
