Wild

I'm doing a rare thing and quilting a quilt for someone else. This is about a once a year thing, and this time the quilt top is from Hillary at Entropy Always Wins.

I like Hillary's work and I was happy to be asked to quilt something of hers. I was also happy she wasn't in a hurry because I generally have about 6 hours a week to quilt and I had things already lined up for a few months.


But now I'm getting to her top and it's a lot of fun.


Hillary gave me a lot of latitude to do what I wanted on the quilt top. Mostly that kind of thing gives me a stomach ache. I'm sure professional quilters get used to it, but I am always second guessing myself with quilting someone else's work. Still, I'm glad for the experiment because it's letting me try my hand at some ideas, especially in all the negative space.


That last one is a shot from the back. I'll show more when it's finished!

Wow, you are really filling up that negative space. I purposely am using alternate solid blocks in the quilt I am making now. On the solid blocks I can have fun with free motion patterns. Thanks for the inspiration you have given to us all.

That looks awesome!! Did you use your free motion foot to to the straight lines or your walking foot? I'm still trying to branch out using my Juki since I don't have a longarm.
