wip - quilting noteworthy plus



I've seen these cool circular fmq designs so I decided to research them a bit.  I kept coming across the word "concentric".  Evidently, I missed that day in Algebra or totally spaced it or something.  So, after looking it up, I found that a bulls eye is a concentric circle.  That will be a cool design to try some day when I have the patience to fish all those beginning and ending strings into the quilt.



I'm quilting giant spirals.  I was just winging it, but found that using marking pens helped a lot, especially since I'm quilting this on my regular pfaff with the itty bitty throat space.

  6. Looking terrific!! I'm going to do a rain-drop interplay of concentric circles at some point this year, and now I'm thinking I should do like you and put some marking in since it's going to be done with a desktop machine.

  8. Quilting looks great! How did you draw the spirals to get them so evenly spaced? Another beautiful quilt!

  9. There is a similar pattern that is very old and traditional -- "Baptist Fan" is the name, I believe -- concentric half circles. Bonnie Hunter is a big 'fan' (ahem; no pun intended); you might check out her Quiltville website to learn more if you are interested. Meanwhile, your circles look great!

  13. It looks great! I made one full size quilt with a big spiral, it adds a cool look to any quilt! I started the center of the spiral with a free motion foot, and a drawn spiral, then switched to a walking foot and a guide. I like how you are making a bunch of big spirals on your quilt, I will have to do that sometime :-)
