Machine Quilting

Progress is being made on machine quilting the Twist comfort quilt. It has been a bright and cheery project to work on this month. 

The quilting started with my standard stitch in the ditch grid with the walking foot. I decided not to quilt the diagonal lines of the design which would go right through the adorable centre blocks.
After all the straight lines were quilted, the fun part started! I changed to the free motion foot and started quilting arcs in the HST blocks. Aren't the fussy cut centres just so sweet?


Then I quilted  more arcs in the empty yellow squares. I just eyeball the arc path, trying to sew a smooth curve from corner to corner. No marking. No rulers. Lots of wobbles and whoopsies. I'm fine with that. 
It's "good enough"!

Beautiful job!

Wobbles and whoopsies will completely disappear after washing. Then cuddlies and crinklies take over :)

The arcs do a great job of highlighting your fussy cut center blocks. Adorable!

They are sweet center blocks.
Hey, when doing free motion, wobbles and whoopsies are part of the total package. And after all is said and done (and quilted), they don't really stand out.

The curve quilting softens the quilt to make it extra cuddly. Well done...
