This past week I have enjoyed custom quilting my Metro Hoops quilt that I pieced back in January. This pattern is by Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful using her Quick Curved Ruler. If you have followed my blog for awhile you know I love making Jenny’s patterns and using her Quick Curve Ruler.
After I pieced the top I made a few sketches of what I wanted to do for quilting designs, I knew right away what I wanted to do in the center of the circles and in the blue diamonds but no idea what to quilt in the background between the circles. I decided to just load the quilt and see what happens. Well after glancing at the cover of the pattern I realized that I like the vertical lines Jenny did as it allows the design in the circle to be the focus so that’s what I did.
For the main quilting design I created a double lined square and pebbled between the double lines. Added a feather motif to the curved area and a Petal feather in the center. I used the same Petal feather in the blue diamonds. I stitched in the ditch along the curved piecing and between all the piecing in the rings.
I used one layer of Quilters Dream Blend batting, White So Fine thread on top and White Bottom Line thread on the back.
Thought I would add a few before and after pictures as I enjoy seeing the transformation that the quilting creates.
