When teaching EQ7 workshops I tell students that they need to play with quilt design like some people play computer games.
This teacher is doing what she preaches, and she is improving her skills.
All the better for the next workshop weekend I am teaching at the Sanctuary in Bordertown February.
I have virtually quilted and unpicked this arrangement of motifs several times this morning … and the best part is that I am thinking less about how to do it in Electric Quilt, and more about what I want the design to look like!
Jude spent time unpicking a real quilt while I was playing!
If only it was so easy to preview quilting designs in a real quilt!
The first version with all cross hatch filler looks a bit boring, and I prefer this second one …
… but what if I do some straight lines around the outside?
Closer together … much better!
Even looks good around the cross hatch filler!
