free motion quilting

Ode to Mondrian

It is an absolutely beautiful spring day here in SE Michigan.  I spent a good part of the day pruning raspberries and moving some blueberry bushes.  Feels like Spring!

I also managed to get in the quilt room today to work on a wall hanging that I have loaded on the longarm.  I was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s work and wanted to make a quilt using the same principles.  Plus, it gives me a lot of negative space to practice my free motion quilting.  My sister says that it reminds her of the mod dresses from the 60s.  I just find it perky!

Happy Spring Quilting!

Free Motion and Feathers

23 March 2017

I have been working on a quilt with my niece Victoria.  She had the top pieced and it was in the closet waiting to be loaded.  So last weekend, she came out to the house and prepped it.   I had her look through some books and come up with a plan on how she wanted to quilt it.  We loaded and got her started, and then took turns working on it.  I practiced some free motion and some feathers.  Adorable quilt!  I just love the colors.
