While I was out cruising the web I stopped by Amanda Jean's blog crazy mom quilts a while back and she was showing a quilt she had complete with a free-hand quilting pattern I thought would look good on my jelly roll/lasagna quilt. I don't free-hand quilt because, honestly, I don't want to put the practice in to be good at it. So what to do?
My first step was to draw a strip two inches wide (that's the width of my fabric strips). Find center, and then draw two lines the width you think you want the quilting to be. The first try I decided I would make the quilting one-inch wide. Using the cap off my vitamin bottle to make my curved line I drew a sample. I thought the first try was too wide, so on the next try I cut the width of my curved line down to a half-inch. I liked it much better.
I think I am going to continue channeling my mother today and stay in my nightgown all day. Maybe do some baking (cookies and bread) and a pot of soup sounds good, too.
I hope everyone is having a good day!
