Drawing flowers

My personal favourite type of machine-quilting is free motion, where I stitch across the top of a quilt in a non-stop ‘line’ drawing. I like stitching flowers and leaves, which can be seen in the photos below, and on the page “Quilts I’ve quilted”. This is from a quilt I recently quilted on the long-arm machine for Trudy. The quilt top was pieced from beautiful prints in vintage colours and because it was a simple design of varying squares and rectangles, there were nice big spaces to quilt big blooms and leaves and scrolls.I also used a variegated thread which adds to the design. We were both happy with the end result.

  1. What a gorgeous quilt – traditional colours but so modern in the detail – absolutely divine! Love it, and the blog – fantastic Karen and well done!
