Yesterday I got on with pin basting my Skip quilt.
I haven't free motion quilted a quilt for a long time now. I keep meaning to try some different quilting designs and even bought Angela Walters' Free Motion Quilting book last year to give me some idea's. But every time I get to the quilting stage I chicken out of trying something new and go for easy styles that I go to time and time again. And there's nothing wrong with that except I really really want to try branch out and get quilting more creatively. So that is how I came to quilting this one in Clamshells, using an idea from Angela's book.
And despite feeling a little anxious I am really REALLY enjoying it.
I love how doodle-y they look, they fit perfectly with the playful nature of this quilt. I am already three quarters done and can't wait to show you the finished quilt!
