Up to now, I've not done a lot of free-motion quilting. I've done some "loop-d-loop" quilts, and these two quilts:
|This quilt has a panel in the center with fairies and butterflies|
|I did free-motion outlining around the fairies, butterflies and flowers in the panel.|
|On this quilt I wanted quilting that would standout, but would complement the theme.|
|I used free-motion radio-wave stitches around the outer border - very effective.|
Here's the result:
I love that groovy board pattern - but it is a bit "busy" for some quilts. This new free-motion design will work well for quilts wshere I want a similar style, but less dense quilting.
I've just finished a "jelly roll race" quilt top - and I'll try this new "nested C" stitch pattern on it. Stay tuned!
