WIP Wednesday: In Line


Well, what can I say? I’ve just been quilting my Greek Key quilt. Yep, that’s about the sum of things this week: Gettin’ her done. : )

This one is pretty minimal for me, and it’s reminded me of the importance of simplifying. I have a tendency to get pretty complex with my designs (sometimes too complex), so going the minimal route was a welcome departure. Note to self: There’s beauty in simplicity too. And even when I’m designing/making something that is intentionally more complex, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t use my critical eye to try to pare things down where I can!

Want to make something minimal with me? This bad boy will be a quilt-along on the Bernina’s We All Sew very soon!

    The quilting looks great. I've never been one for the real ornate quilting. Not that there aren't some gorgeous quilts made that way, my quilts just seem to do better with simple.

    Hi. Your quilts are gorgeous and yours is one of my bloglovin favorites. Could you tell me how you go about your straight line quilting? I have a piece I want to quilt that way but have never done it and I'm terrified.

    Straight line quilting is my favourite and it really suits the design of your quilt. I do it most of the time, when I'm not hand quilting, because that's my least favourite part and it's easier! Thank goodness for the walking foot!
