Thanks to tips from Sarah and Shasta I was able to find enough free motion designs to quilt a different one in each of my streaks of lightening. Sarah led me to Christina at a Few Scraps. Shasta’s tip led me to Leah Day. If you are ever looking for ideas on how to quilt your quilts I would recommend either of these sights. Lots of great ideas and tutorials. Thanks ladies I learned a lot.
And I’m thrilled with the results on my quilt. Not to mention I now have lots of ideas for other quilts.
After the quilting was done I made a scrappy brown binding using this method. I auditioned a burgundy but found the brown more complimentary. You can find how to make this simple block here and ideas for other layouts can be found here. Now it’s ready to be a quilty hug. Do you think it is masculine enough to work as a man quilt? Linking up with Sarah, Amanda Jean and Cynthia to celebrate.
