I have really started something!
I have been fiddling with the quilting layer in Electric Quilt for years, but much prefer the real thing, which usually involves making up the design as I go along.
I quilt around the shapes of the applique and piecing, then fill in details and open spaces in real quilts, and I have decided I should really learn to do that in virtual quilts. I am working on wholecloth quilts because I keep getting distracted by the patchwork and applique in virtual designs, and have not taken the time to really master the quilting layer.
I am starting with a small collection of blocks with background filler, but haven’t progressed very far at all with the borders …
… so most of the borders at this time look like the one above!
I also have to remember not to have anymore than one reel of virtual thread at hand when I am virtually quilting too!
So, I am going to find out what my style of quilting a pieced and applique quilt will look like as a whole cloth quilt … then maybe I will add the quilting to more virtual designs!
