Scrappy Trip Along Beige Quilt
My First Scrappy Trip Along Quilt is Quilted!
I joined the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild’s Scrappy Trip Along project over the summer. You might remember me working on the quilt top and sharing some ideas on the blog in this post.
This small-ish beige and blue quilt was the first project to load onto my new HandiQuilter frame.
After doodling a few designs on paper, I went with a sort of swirled hook with feathers around the swirl shape. I was so happy and so excited to give it a try…. WELL, turns out, you pretty much cannot see the quilting anywhere on the patchwork design. The only place you’ll even notice the feather/swirl is in the border.
This is really good news!! I had to concentrate and really “hold it together” in the borders, right? But in the middle of the patchwork I could practice practice practice without the pressure. By the time I quilted to the final edge, the feather/swirl design was really starting to look as I envisioned.
The quilt back is equally busy printed fabric, so the border really is the only place to see the quilting on the Scrappy Trip Along quilt.
