I started quilting the Spikey Quilt yesterday. I decided on a simple echo stitch near the ditch in matching thread for each second point. I was going to do for every point but quickly realized that sewing every second point was just as good. A tangle of rainbow threads!
I love my walking foot! It just glides over the fabric so nicely. I'm doing white around all the spikes and then am going to do some textural pebble quilting all over the white. I'm really pleased with how it is looking, its starting to grow on me with each stitch and I'm hoping that the person that receives this will be appreciative of the work gone into it. Even though the last quilt I made in this swap was ohh'ed and ahhh'ed over on flickr, I get the gut feeling that the person didn't really like it and I don't want that to happen to this little quilt. I know that is the risks of swaps, but..... you know what I mean don't you?
