Machine Quilting Day 4
Another quilting from photo inspiration day again. Today my photo is of an outside chair back. It has a lattice effect.
You are probably familiar with cross-hatching. Single cross-hatching is the most common as it is a lot quicker to do, but to depict the photo, I have used the double cross-hatching technique. I didn't weave the lines in and out like a real lattice, just stitch over them as I did not want to have lots of stopping and starting threads.
I really like this effect, however it is all done with straight quilting and a walking foot which is my least favorite quilting technique.
I decided to take this one step further and fill in the lattice with a very small stipple. Now it looks like a real lattice. In fact, it could be used instead of the trellis I made in yesterday's post about my quilt pattern Blooming Trellis.
Have you ever stippled that small before? The lattice strips are just 1/4" wide.
