Quilting and texture

Today I wanted to try something new, so I started to play with a Tanya Whelan fabric bundle.
These are not the colors I usually use but they are so lovely.


The second new thing was this grid quilting. Whenever I see a large quilt quilted with such a grid, I have a great admiration for the quilter. It's easy to quilt  small pieces but for large quilts I imagine a lot of patience is required.

View from the batting side, I did not use backing.

It was a pleasure to mix different prints.





I will show you what I will make with them soon.

  5. Beautiful work! I love the grid quilting and the circular design, too. I have been playing with a REAL walking foot on my Bernina (not the gadget on my Pfaff) and I am also taken by the beauty of it all. I look forward to seeing how you use/finish these.

  7. When you did the spiral quilting, was it free motion or did you turn the quilt and do it walking foot style?
