I'm a little bit stuck. I'm having a confidence crisis with this quilt. I love how it is looking so clean and crisp but I'm afraid to quilt it! Normally I would just straight line or do a wiggly stipple if I have no clue what I want the quilting to look like. Thing is I'm afraid I'm going to mess this one up! I'd like to keep it looking boxy but not be boring! I could be over thinking this one, just a tad!
To try and break myself out of this and as I am only learning free motion quilting, I made some practice sandwiches last Sunday morning and have been playing with designs and trying to figure what to do. For some reason I found it easier to get into a rhythm of loopy l's when doing big l, little l rather than big l the whole way across. I really like the scroll too though it is a bit harder.
Loops and stars I'm getting better at bit could do with more practice on flowers and clovers. Still after filling up 3 practice sandwiches I'm still clueless. Paula in our Thursday night sewing class suggested interlocking circles in red, which would be really cool but I'm not that brave, not yet!
So I went back to the drawing board and started playing with layers on Photoshop elements and came up with this.
On a plus side while all this indecision was going on I started cutting my triangles for the Triangle Quilt-A-Long at Sassy Quilter. I've heard this being called Crafternation (crafters procrastination!)
As I'm going for a rainbow effect I'm cutting a few, selecting the next colour, cutting some more and building it up. It's starting to come together nicely. Can't believe how big these triangles are!
Loving this project and no hesitation or indecision with this one yet!
