Back in March of this year I completed piecing the top of a baby quilt, “9-Patch Posies”. This flimsy sat in the WIP pile for several months but has now moved to the top of the stack.
Quilting these swirls is a first for me. I’ve practiced a few times but this is the first time I’ve actually stitched them on a quilt. Things are going well so far and I’m liking the outcome. All my quilting is done by me on my domestic machine so there are some quilt patterns that I just am not able to accomplish.
I have to say that deciding on the quilt stitching is one of the most difficult choices to make – at lease for me. Picking blocks, colors, and fabric is fun; but when it comes to the actual quilting, I tend to stumble a lot. All the choices I’ve made up to this point have created a certain “look” and “feel” and I want to be careful and deliberate in choosing a stitch pattern that contributes to that “look” and doesn’t distract or work against it.
How do you choose your quilt stitching patterns?
