I've had this varsity lawn quilt hanging on my banister for a while, waiting for a back. I saw one like it at market in Houston last fall, and set out to shamelessly copy it. It went pretty fast considering the size of these ginormous flying geese (measuring 12"x6").
Thread is ready and waiting (see this post about that)
I'm really excited to quilt this. It has a lot of negative space to quilt and I've got some really cool designs to try to mimic from some pictures I took in Mexico City last week.
I had a few extra hours, and buzzed down to my favorite part of the city, San Angel. It's a very old neighborhood with the charm of quaint cobblestone streets, meandering around stone walls, and old wood doors with deep red bougainvillea hanging over the walls.
I'm just going to mark my quilt with a disappearing pen, focusing a pattern to a small section.
This is the beginnings of a log cabin pattern. I never thought of using the log cabin design for quilting.
I have tons of pictures of this metal graffiti, I think it will look really cool quilted.
Do you see any fun free motion quilting designs in these patterns?
See that open door down there? I was walking down that street and saw that open door and saw someone else walk in, so I decided to do the same. cool. stuff. inside.
you see a red car or two? I see lines, arches, contrast, organized space, centuries old, unity, structure, symmetry, patterns, oh, and a red car (or two :)
another inviting "opened" gate :)
match stick lines
