Part 6: The next 2 “rows”……………

Will be continuing the pattern of ruler-work/straight line stitching and feathers. This time, I increased the spacing of the straight stitched lines from the previous ‘row’………………………..IMG_1760 A bit of a better perspective….IMG_1759 I have found it’s so very easy to quilt smaller scale motifs and a bit of a challenge to ‘think big’. When using a domestic or sit-down machine, your field of vision is much smaller than when the project would be on a long-arm frame so the tendency to focus on that smaller area results in a smaller scale design. Keeping the design that I want firmly visualized in my mind helps to give me the desired results. The next ‘row’ (again, a solid green) is feathers…………………..IMG_1764 Although, maintaining similar themes, each ‘row’ needs to be modified to fit the Drunkard’s Path curves which don’t fall the same in all instances.

Stitching in the ditch comes before any of the designs to stabilize the areas and allow me to remove the basting pins.

For further details on this quilt’s progress, see this post for its “birth”. Well…..it’s Friday and another weekend approaches. I hope there’s some quilty moments in your future! I treasure your visits and hope you return again. Till next we meet, I send you hugs………………

    Making the motifs grow as they move outward is genius, Doreen! So cool!
