A client’s quilt that is true “patchwork”. It came to me with the very specific request that it remain soft and drape-able after the quilting.The denser the quilt stitching the stiffer the finish (especially with certain battings). For anyone who does sit-down FMQ (free motion quilting) knows…..doing an even, all-over, larger motif presents some challenges. Because of the smaller vision field, keeping the motifs similar in size and evenly spaced demands that I visualize more than what is in front of me. It gets easier as the process progresses.
