Ummm, yeah the deadline was yesterday and I barely made it in time. There are some amazing quilts that have been entered and I wish you call could see. The entries are in a thread on the Modern Quilt Guild forum, though, so you can only look if you are a member. I love my quilt but I felt kind of way out of my league posting it. I'm still trying to figure out what modern quilting is!
I've done done quite a bit of straight line quilting before, but this was by far the most I've ever tried on a quilt. It was kind of an experiment...
My first set of lines was about 3/8'' apart, and I decided to quilt down the middle of each to make it even more intense. I'm also really happy with the effect that the gray thread had. I had first planned to use matching orange thread for the quilting, but that orange solid fabric was just so warm that I started to think it was too much. I picked out my first few lines of orange quilting and tried gray and loved it. It definitely cools the color down a bit.
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
