Allover Quilting Designs
LeAnne Olson machine-quilted an allover feather pattern across the quilt center and different feather designs around the border.
Using variegated thread, designer Ann Weber machine-quilted a 1-1⁄2"-wide diagonal grid across the quilt top. She used a walking foot to prevent puckers where grid lines cross each other.
Using black crochet cotton and long running stitches (about 1⁄4" with 1⁄4" spaces in between), Lorraine Hofmann hand-quilted a 3"-wide diamond grid across the quilt top.
Designer Julie Hendricksen machine-quilted a 3⁄4"-wide diagonal grid across the quilt top, intersecting the top point of each Flying Geese unit and the center of each square in the Four-Patch units.
Using pink thread, Dawn Larsen machine-quilted an allover design of scrolls, leaves, and birds.
Little Boy Blue
Designer Sandy Klop machine-quilted an allover meander across the quilt top.
Sticks & Bricks
Amy Walsh machine-quilted a dense pattern of swirls, loops, and paisleys across the quilt top. The dark cream thread color melts into the background fabric, adding texture without distracting from the floral and geometric designs.
Connie Gresham machine-quilted the featured quilt with an allover leaf-and-flower design.
Designer Malka Dubrawsky machine-quilted rows of serpentine stitches, spaced about 1" apart, across the quilt top.
Darlene Zimmerman hand-quilted a row of stitches vertically through each dark print square in the leaf blocks. She stipple-quilted the light print areas of the table runner center. In the border she highlighted the leaf motifs of the print with free-motion stitching.
