After 5 months of income tax season and 3+ weeks in Africa, I am back home and getting to spend time in my studio. It is SUCH a wonderful feeling!!
The first order of business is to quilt the first of two baby quilts that I need to get into the mail. I made the tops at our guild retreat back in May (you can read about it HERE)
I knew that I wanted to keep the quilting fairly simple and I also wanted it to be FAST. But, I was concerned about how to fill in ALL of that space and keep it interesting!!
Somewhere along the line, I got the idea to use some of my Westalee “Spin-E-Fex” rulers to quilt some large-ish designs first and then fill in with other quilting.
So, the first step was to decide on placement of those designs and get them quilted!!
I chose to add a few half-designs to some of the edges as well……
I used several different rulers in the Westalee Spin-E-Fex series, including #11, 15 & 16.
I have previously posted reviews, videos and information on each of these rulers and you can check them out here…..
Now that the ruler work is done, it is time to move on to the filler quilting!! Come back tomorrow for more…..
