Rockin Row Robin Quilted

After only one short year… I finished my Rockin Row Robin Quilt. How do I know it was a year ago when I made the top???? Well, the blog hopping designers and myself decided to add the date to our blog button when we launched the quilt along:

Ah, well, that was nice of us. HA! But all the UFO busters will be rejoicing as I finally quilted this little modern row quilt. My main hang-up was that I wanted it to be a “quilting sampler by rows” also, and I was nervous to try to quilt 6-7 different designs.

I did one row of just meandered flowers. I used the free motion quilting motif tutorial here on the site.

I used a sort of clamshell looking fill on both narrow hexagon rows. For the houses, I quilted some swirly wind and siding. I know… probably too much thought went into the house row.

I did a simple meander one the rectangle block. In all the blue borders I made a line of… um… beads. I like to think of them as ocean pearls, because not a damn one of them turned out like a perfect circle. hahahah. I also didn’t cover the whole blue line with circles, so I don’t think that counts as the “pebble” motif.

I have not yet cut off the threads on the back of the quilt. I didn’t pull the bobbin thread to the front, like you are supposed to either. ((shhhhh…quilt police might hear ya….))? But I thought I’d show you the quilt back, all the same.

Oh, of course I used white-ish thread on the front. I wasn’t too concerned with the back, so I used grey thread back there. I thought if I used blue, I might get little blue spots or “pokies” all over the front of my quilt top. Now, we will never know…

So this is my latest adventure on my Hinterberg frame with the Juki quilting machine, mid-arm quilting machine. Warm and Natural Cotton Batting.

  1. Jen, How do you like your quilting set-up? I am looking at a sit-down HQ Sweet Sixteen as I really don’t have the space for a frame of any type. I, also, really LIKE moving the quilt, as opposed to moving the machine (although, I really haven’t done much quilting on a frame/machine longarm) Really like your final quilting on the “Rockin’ Robin Row Robin” quilt!! Hugs, Doreen
