After booking to teach my basic machine quilting classes at Quilters Quest later in the year I thought it was about time I made some new samples. New samples need new fabric so I did a little shopping…
Two pieces of Carrie Bloomston’s Collage collection for Windham Fabrics, a piece of Andover’s Textured Solid in ripple (teal) and some Pure Element solids from Art Gallery Fabrics went together to create a little quilt (18″ x 36″) ready for some walking foot quilting.
Quilted with five colors of Aurifil #50, there are straight lines, some wavy lines (an adjusted lingerie stitch) and a spiral.
We move onto free motion quilting in Machine Quilting 2. For this sample I used some more of those Art Gallery Fabric Pure Elements and a piece of P and B Textile’s Close to Home by TS Post for that little square in the top left quadrant, surrounded by a narrow strip of Marcia Derse’s Modern Solid in gold. I put a strip of the Textured Solid in there too.
This one is 25″ square.
I used just one color of Aurifil #50 for my quilting but all kinds of filler stitches.
I like the way they came out… and checking off an item on my ever-growing “to do” list is just great!!
