When I revealed my "Still Swooning" mini last week, there were many comments on the quilting.
This 3x18" ruler and my hera marker were all the tools I needed. I laid my ruler down and marked a line around the ruler as shown.
Then I slid the ruler down to extend that one long line on the right side of the 'U'.
As you can see, I echo-quilted within the 'U', and along the left-hand sides of my original markings, which resulted in a fun zig-zag pattern that filled the left side of the quilt. I liked that so much, I reset my ruler to the right, off-setting it a bit from the original, and marked again.
I filled in the second "U" and then went for a third, this time sliding my ruler up a bit to offset this "U" from the other 2. From there, I just filled in the third "U" and then echo-stitched to the right, to fill in the rest of the quilt with more zig-zag.
See how easy that was? Not too taxing, but something fun and unique for this particular project.
I'm kind of fond of how your eye dances around the movement caused by the quilting.
So tell me - what inspires you when it comes to quilting designs - ? Inquiring minds want to know.
