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 ThreadI 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.

  1. Jen, the graffiti quilting is so cool! By leaving the hedgehogs outlined and unqulted I was able to go in with a variety of solid colored threads and finish them on my domestic machine. I’ll send some images if you want to add them to your post. Thanks for making this so special. The black thread looks amazing on the gray Essex. Woo Hoo!
