Whole Cloth Quilt
After making my tiny whole cloth experiment, I decided I wanted to try it again. Crazy, right? I wanted to use the same printed quilting guide lines, then fill in the quilting with different motifs. The little quilted mini’s would be the same, but different. And the are both funky dot fabrics, so that’s fun.

See what I mean? I’ve switched up radiating lines for bubbles and meandering for arches. I’m tellin’ ya- it is surprisingly quick to make up and the possibilities are feeling endless. -which is good. I do think I might have worked too quickly on the green quilt because I can see a whole handful of “mistakes”. Thankfully, I’m not too worried about it. It is just an experiment.
Here’s something that makes the mini’s look different too- The green mini has two layers of polyester batting inside. The pink mini has one layer of Hobb’s 80/20. Very interesting, right? I have to say, based on only these two samples, I’m liking the Hobb’s better.
I did trace out the quilting guide lines with blue water soluble marker- after that, the rest is all free motion quilting. (FMQ). I even used green thread on the top and orange thread in the bobbin. Progress has been made.
