Big Modern

Recently, I had a tremendous amount of fun quilting on a big king size modern quilt.  With lots of white space, there was ample room to play with textures and patterns.  As it was very asymmetrical, it was a bit of a challenge to have the patterns flow but in the end, it all came together and was loved by the customer!





The customer wanted very modern, geometric quilting so I knew I was going to get some practice in on tight fills.

But to really work the eye, I also wanted to have some open spaces.










Of course, Clamshells had to be fit in somewhere....





I really tried to fill this quilt with quilting to make the eye travel. I even literally quilted pathways!




Caution...exploding blocks!

Love the effect of them surrounded by all the various straight line quilting.

......can you tell I had fun!


The quilt is SO big, I was unable to get a photograph of it in its entirety.  But I do know it will be shown at the EMQG February meeting and will be displayed at the Pioneer Quilter's Show here in Eugene in April.  I'm sure I will have more pictures to share of it in the future.

I don't always show pictures of my quilting here on my blog.  If you would like to see more, my Facebook page is where I usually feed these types of photos to.  You never know what will be next!

Your quilting has given the white space so much texture. Great job!

What a variety of patterns and textures. The quilting makes the quilt a show stopper.

I absolutely love the quilting you've done on this! Do you mind if I take a couple of ideas and see if they work on a quilt I need to FMQ? I'm loving the circles on the lines in particular.
