TGIFF! - It Figures It's Modern Totems

Welcome to TGIFF!, where every finish deserves to be celebrated!

I'm sharing my Modern Totems quilt that is made with the Figures by Zen Chic fabric line paired with some Kona white. Except the binding. The binding was Serena Blue Diamonds by Windham Fabrics. The backing is the Numbers fabric from IKEA. :)

For the quilting, I used Aurifil #2024 for doing straight-line quilting and some wavy-line stitching with my walking foot.

For the wavy-line quilting, I took one of the decorative stitches on my machine (#4 for those of you with a Bernina 440 QE) and elongated it so it gives me uniform wavy lines.

This quilt is 54" by 58". 



Thinking of trying this pattern next with rainbow solids and charcoal backing. Mmmm...

  7. Beautiful totem poles and thanks for the tip on using stitch number 4 for quilting; it makes an interesting combination with the straight line quilting.

  9. Very nice. I especially like the quilting. Simple straight lines with the addition of the wavy lines... it adds just the necessary roundness to the straight lines.

  10. It's a gorgeous finish and what a great photo shoot! That Modern Totems looks right at home by the tree. Gotta love a pattern that make you want to make the quilt right away again in another colour way. Those rainbow solids would just pop right off a dark background!

  19. Great finish. I love the negative space and how your quilting bridges the patterned fabrics with the background.
