For music lovers everywhere …
I have to admit that I was intrigued by a large block piecing pattern I saw online and decided to try it. The fact that the blocks are large made the piecing bearable! haha
I also tried some geometric stitching patterns in the blocks (not a huge fan of geometrics myself, but it worked out OK) surrounded by a big wavy stitching pattern in an effort to mimic the swirly design in the burgundy fabric. I like lines, but doing repeated triangles and other pointed things, while sometimes the most fitting choice in a block, doesn’t give me the same entertainment that flowing & swirling stitching patterns in wide open spaces do!
As the teacher in one of my online hyper-quilting classes said (I’m paraphrasing a bit here but her point is still clear) that’s the hard part for people who are “into” free motion quilting: the stitching we enjoy doing most is always better seen on solids than on busy prints 🙂
