A couple of you wanted to know how I did the stitches
on this project yesterday.
I used my machine and curved all the way down each row.
Corner to corner.
I've tried this before with just one CURVE....
but when I double the curves in each square.....
my imperfections are HIDDEN. ;)
I do not like to mark quilting lines....
so this pattern worked great on this little table topper.
I began at the top of a row
and curved my line of stitching down to the opposite corner.
I then curved back UP to the top.
Then I curved down RIGHT next to the FIRST curve.
Here's the next SQUARE.
I did the same thing.
Down, up, and down again.
Each square has THREE curves.
Here's the last bit.
When you get to the bottom of a row of squares....
You turn around and go back UP through
ALL the squares filling in
ONE MORE curved line.
Hope that explains it a bit.
I really like this quilting design...
but have to CONFESS.....
I rarely quilt this heavily on QUILTS.
I usually save these close stitches for small projects!!!!
Here's what I'm working on now.
SWIRLY lines ALL over.
It goes much faster....
and it's a quilting pattern that seems to
come easily for me.
We probably ALL have a "DOODLE" that's inside of us.
Well.....this is mine. ;)
When you're wrestling with a quilt...
You don't want to have to THINK too much. :/
