I loaded this baby quilt on the fame and then had to figure out how to quilt it.
I wanted to do something freehand and decided that quilting it rather like a topographical map would look good. I’ve done this before, but it’s been a while. So first I played a bit on my white board.
I think I quilt better than I draw, but this helps to get in the flow of things.
This kind of quilting is really fun! If you haven’t tried it, you should!
By the way, if you’ve been wanting the GO! Big electric die cutter, it is on sale through October 16th! Click here to learn more. Here is one of many reasons I love my die cutter:
Yep, carpal tunnel. But I can crank the pieces through with my left hand and everything ends up perfectly cut. It would be even easier with the GO! Big since there is no cranking at all! I won’t quit quilting, but this saves some wear and tear on my hands. Also, there are some new free patterns on the Accuquilt site here. You don’t necessarily have to have the dies and cutter to use the patterns.
Have a great day!
