Well my Winner's Bouquet quilt it is still not quilted. I believe I post a picture of it in May when I finished piecing it and the 'sit and share' design method that I have been using for 8 months hasn't helped too much. So today I got it out and posted a few pictures on a quilting forum to get some ideas going. I know what I want to do in the colored batik shapes it is the beige background with it's odd shape that has me stumped. One quilter suggested repeating the football shape and fill it with pebbles and that got me thinking of a few designs. So here is what I have doodled so far using my plexiglass design board. Is this design too 'over the top' for this quilt?
Which do you prefer the design in the left football or right football? And if you have any suggestions on how to quilt this one I would be very happy to hear them.
I'm starting to think I'm crazy for wanting to quilt this design on a queen size quilt ( 94"x110"). It's a biggy.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
