These past few weeks I have been busy making this wall hanging quilt. It measures 26 in x 26 in. I got the idea in a magazine, with much less free motion quilting.
It was quite the challenge deciding on what types of free motion quilting to use, and got valuable input from Leah Day at The Free Motion Quilting Project. I did wiggly horizontal lines on the white background fabric behind the tree, Pebble ripples in the inner white border and blowing wind, which I think I did not pull off quite exactly as Leah, but I gave it a go, and I am happy with the result.
I echoed around the base of the tree on the grass hill, not knowing if it would even 'work', but I like how it adds texture and creates a 'shadow' effect. I quilted tree bark on the tree trunk, and for the inside of the tree, I just followed the swirly design of the fabric.
I am super proud of this quilt. The effects all the free motion quilting has add so much texture to the design.
