Welcome to Week 3 of the Machine Quilting Blog Hop!
Today we are working on Chapter 3 of The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting by Angela Walters and Christa Watson, Directionally Challenged.
Remember last week how I thought I might be done with this piece? Well, after looking at some of the cool designs for triangles, I knew I had to add just a little bit more.
First we did some simple echoing. Since this area was so small, I just did it with freemotion and used the edge of the darning foot as my guide. It's not perfect, but it's also not noticeable unless you really look. I love how this echoes the straight lines on the purple border!
This continuous curve design is where I really had a good time, though. I love how easy it is to get this gentle, leafy curve without having to mark. I just used my zigzags to check my spacing and create a focal point.
If you'd like to see Angela in action using these same designs, check out this episode of The Midnight Quilt Show.
Now I think I really am done with this little quilt. Check out what Kristin, HollyAnne, and Vicki did with this week's designs, and follow us on your favorite social media channel with the hashtag #machinequiltingbloghop. Jump in a join us anytime!
