9 : : I must be crazy!


Posted on July 9th, by Amy in photographs, quilt-along. 45 comments

It is basted together! I’m still undecided on how to quilt. . . it’s so linear I’m thinking curves . . . any suggestions?

And there’s a new quilt-along in the flickr group - come join us!

    Pretty…and big. Good luck with the quilting. I'm sure whatever you decided will only enhance it.

    I think it looks great, and yes, curves would be cool. I love the loopy quilting that one of the Wildwood quilts in the flickr group has. It is goddessinprogress' quilt.

    I totally admire you for taking this on! I think I'll be ready to quilt the zig zag myself, but my QAL is going to the Backporch Quilters.

    I like your craziness. The zigzag quilt sounds like a lot of fun. I just finished the top for the one based on Amanda Jean's tutorial and found a mistake in it. I like the idea of curves. This from the person who does not machine quilt.

    Wow! This is going to be an amazing quilt when you're finished…curved quilting sounds good to me!

    Wow. Machine quilting that yourself is a daunting prospect. At least it would be for me. :)

    I like the thought of soft spirals or cursive loops on your quilt. The softness will offset the straight lines and compliment the soft, lazy colors. It's beautiful, and I hope I have the courage to make one that big someday!

    definitely some loopy loops!

    Your quilt is great. I did the QAL I did mine with a one inch diagonal grid. Came out very nice and was not to hard for me to do on my machine. I can't wait to see what you do with curves that will be wonderful. I can't wait for the Zig Zag QAL!!!

    Man, that's huge! Curves would be perfect!

    bearcreekquilter says:

    Yes, curves are always a good choice on a linear quilt. I could see lines back and forth following the direction of the piecing in each block. That would make a more graphic look to the quilt. Just a thought.

    Just beautiful.

    Amy, your quilt is so big, how do you quilt a quilt that big? I vote for curves and swirls. Aunt Beth

    I saw this quilt today, and the quilting made me think of your quilt and how you're trying to figure out what to do…

    I admire you for tackling such a large quilt. This is going to be SO amazing! I guess I would just do free motion so you don't get overwhelmed.

    I'm so excited for the new quilt-along! Thanks for leading us.

    Yes I think curves or echoed circles would be great!! I did a very square quilt once and used circles to quilt, I loved the result!

    Take one of the floral patterns from your fabric and use as an inspirational repeat. You could do it in each block, or as a linear pattern.
