I quilted three loops in the same direction, very close together so that it looked like ribbon does right after you curl it with scissors, then all over loops around it. The over-all effect was really neat! Here is a more solid print so you can see the quilting a bit better...
The third quilt was a fishy quilt. We looked through my patterns and found a couple that would work, but then our friend Annie and I had a great idea, why not make it look like water, so I free motion quilted the next one, which is a lot of fun for me. I love being able to stand at the front of the machine!!! When I quilt with a pantograph, which is a specific design, I stand at the back of the machine and I watch the pattern that I am tracing with a laser light, which means that I don't get to see the quilt as much...anyways back to Jeannie's quilt...I used a variegated thread that goes from a light blue, to medium blue, to purple. The changing colors made the water effect even more prominent.
Wow, those pictures can get big! Here's another
I had a lot of fun quilting for you Jeannie!
