Here’s the latest project in my free motion quilting journey. Beginning with a beautiful Renoir print fabric panel by Robert Kaufman and stunning coordinating borders from the Northcott “Stonehenge” collection, I decided to get out my Mom’s Featherweight machine to do all of the piecing. What a joy!
For this quilted throw, I let the Renoir painting inspire what free-motion patterns I would choose and proceeded from there.
For the borders, I chose a meandering wood grain pattern for the golden fabric, a meandering leaf pattern for the teal green fabric and meandering swirl pattern for the royal blue fabric. (Thanks again Angela Walters!)
After all the precise grid work I did on several of my past quilts, I was amazed to have finished this exclusively free-motioned quilted throw in about a week. So liberating!
Lastly, I had great fun creating the label for the back:
