Beyond Stippling

Since the Green and White is a "sampler" quilt made from twelve different blocks, why not sample some free-motion quilting patterns too?

Pebbles

Small Meander

Zig-Zag

Flower

Fooffy

Flowing Glass

I have been inspired by Leah's blog and all her free-motion quilting tutorials. This is much more fun than stippling the whole quilt.

If I thought this Green and White would be an easy, quick quilting project, I was wrong! The free-motion designs are time consuming, but well worth the effort.

I didn't know there were so many different ways of quilting. Small Meander is my favorite, but they all look great. You seem to have more time for quilting these days ... it's nice to see.

WONDERFUL quilting! I'm so envious. One day I will figure this out. In the meantime, it is one small stitch at a time by hand...
