I honestly thought upon my return from Quiltcon that I would have a hard time sitting down to more traditional quilts, but the reality is that I love improvisational modern quilts AND simple shapes of traditional quilts.
I think I’ve explained this back and forth process before. Traditional is just easy on the design brain and helps me hone my value and coordination skills, while improvisational does overtime.
Nicquelle’s Quilt needed to be quilted.
Now it just needs binding.
I’ve also become pretty set over the years in my mind that I prefer an allover quilting design. I knew the spirals were it from the beginning and enlisted Sandie’s help for that.
We had an afternoon of free-motion play at her long arm after I finally got over my initial ohhing and awwing at how much I love this little quilt.
Here’s a question for you. Why is it that I always want to bind a quilt in a fabric that I have extinguished from my stash? Does that happen to anyone else?
