I thought I would just share whole cloth designs …
… then I thought again.
This project file has a mixture of pieced and applique designs for the quilt tops with their quilting designs, as well as some whole cloth designs just using the block designs as quilting motifs. Sometimes you will see the front and back of the same quilt, but I found I was forgetting to save the whole cloth version before I made changes sometimes.
Well, to be honest, almost every time! I was having too much fun.
I have always liked seeing the backs of quilts to see how the quilted designs looked without the patchwork and applique.
The last one is the same quilt top as the second, with the same quilting designs, but with a slight change in thread colours … I am not too sure which one I prefer, but think it might be the last one, with just a few of the stars in a stronger contrast thread.
I think the best idea is to use the background fabric from the quilt top on the back, and use the pieced and applique block designs as part of the marking for the whole cloth back.
