#9 of 10

I wasn't in the mood to quilt tonight but made myself do a small top before heading up to the sewing room. This is a little Happy Block top I threw together after getting my GO Cutter.

Before trying a grid on one of the larger tops I thought I'd experiment on this one. I like kids quilts to stay soft and cuddly and this one has just enough quilting I think - no marking - just following the piecing lines. You can click directly on the photos to enlarge.

I love the quilting on this one, Mary! This quilt has a very cuddly and comforting feel to it!

This quilting motif you used looks perfect for a soft, cuddly quilt. Thanks for showing the closeups and the backs of your quilts, Mary. I quilt my own, and those photos easily show me what the designs look like. I'm always curious.

The grid quilting is really effective! You will easily make your goal of 10 quilts!

Wow. They wavey lines make it look like a completely different quilt. Sort of soft and puffy. A very cozy effect!

Marilyn said...

I really like how it loooks on BOTH sides of the quilt. How do you do the grid?

Joanne said...

Nice job on the quilting -- I have to use a template to get the line dancing to look even half way decent. Guess I need to practice a lot more!

Love the wavy/grid quilting you have done. Gives lots of interest. In fact love all of the quilting samples you have shared with us on your blog. You are so very talented and sharing. Thanks.
