I'd like to show you some quilting that my friend Sandra did. Sandra's mom is a quilter, but does not do free motion quilting. Sandra was the first recipient of a group quilt from our circle of friends. She asked me to teach her free motion quilting and I gave her a brief lesson. When I was expecting our daughter, Sandra organized a Sci-Fi themed group quilt for me from our circle of friends. It was only the second quilt she ever quilted. While the entire quilt is a work of art, I'd like to show you pictures of Sandra's awesome quilting here as a testimony that jumping in to free motion quilting is totally worth it and you shouldn't fuss too much. Sandra, thank you for the amazing gift of your time and talent. I treasure this quilt.
She stippled the entire border. And by stippling I mean, it makes you tired just to think about doing something that detailed.
Check out the spacey stitching in this Wall-E block.
See the little flower stitched down on the planet?! Genius.
I was so delighted when I discovered this little oil can stitched next to the robot.
And the stitching on the arms of the space monkey's space suit is just perfection.
Here is how she quilted the "wormhole". Awesome, right?
I love her way of inserting spirals into the stippling.
This is an extreme close up of a Baobab tree so you can see the little detailed leaves and swirls.
So how about that? Are you feeling inspired? I sure hope so. Happy stitching!
