Graffiti Quilting and Hazel Hedgehog
Graffiti Quilting on a Hazel Hedgehog Quilt
I have some details from a customer quilt to share. My friend, Leslie, trusted me to stitch graffiti quilting in the vast negative space of her new Hazel Hedgehog baby boy quilt.
Since this isn’t my project, I do not have a whole “quilt reveal” here. Rather, I’m sharing some extensive free motion quilting designs on the beautiful grey Essex Linen fabric.
I tried to snap pictures over the entire quilt (63″ x 45″) for my own personal reference. There are so many swirled, pointed, hooked and feathered design motifs in this piece.
The design is stitched with black Superior Thread.I was quite nervous to start stitching.
I don’t think you’ll be able to see in these pictures, but the Hazel Hedgehogs were simply outlined with in-the-ditch style ruler-work quilting. I wanted them to be stabilized and secure, but I didn’t want to lose them in the the dense quilting. The in-the-ditch work makes the hedgehogs pop a bit.
And that is my graffiti quilting extravaganza! Huge thank you to Leslie, who trusted me with her project. If you are looking to have a quilt finished, please send me an email. Find out more about my longarm quilting services at ReannaLilyQuilts.com.
