Machine Quilting Day 13
Today's inspiration photo is something you most likely see a lot - floor tiles. These kitchen floor tiles are various sizes so make for an interesting design.
I made three samples. The first one was a sample using free-motion quilting.
It is definitely easy to manauver around and go from side to side, backward and forth using free-motion, however the lines are not always perfectly straight. I think it would help if I had started off with an outlined box to keep the whole area square.
For my next sample I used the walking foot and straight stitching.
The lines were much straighter but because I had to stop and pivot all the time, I made the boxes larger. This could make an interesting overall design on a geometic style quilt using really large boxes.
For my third sample, I went back to free-motion which is what I prefer. This time I made the boxes with rounded corners.
I like this a lot. It is similar to pebbles but has more formation. It would make a great fill-in design.
