WIP Wednesday - Quilting Jewelled Squares.

I finished the backing for my Jewelled Squares quilt on the weekend. I immediately sandwiched it and popped the walking foot on the machine.

Down and then back up. And then down and back up and then down again and back up. You get the idea. To make it more exciting for me I am using two spools of thread, a few lines of green, then some of blue. I haven't marked the lines, I'm just doing it by eye. As you can see some gaps between the lines are bigger than some other gaps. I like that. I am more than happy with that effect!

I love the back as much as I love the front! I hope to finish it on the weekend..... And am already thinking of doing another one. There is something about squares......

Beautiful! I love the browns and blues together, it reminds me of pictures of the world around you...brown earth and blue skies.

It's lovely. I like the unevenness of the lines too. Cherrie

It's a wonderful quilt and one of my favorite things is that the quilting is not perfectly spaced.

Love everything you've done with this one....fabric selection is to perfection (front and back) as is your quilting.

The free form straight quilting is such a lovely addition to the beautiful squares. Looks great!
