Trying out a new series of baby quilts and having lots of fun with different fabrics on my design wall in my new sewing room. I'm loving using geometric and solid fabrics available in current color options. I'm experimenting with abstract modern style for all those mod baby nurseries.
I think the skinny lines of quilting stitches are called channel quilting. The walking foot on my Janome sewing machine was an essential part of accomplishing this look. I also used a new Frixion marking pen from Pilot to mark guidelines every few inches to keep me on track. It's a gel erasable pen that disappears when ironed and I love it!!
I decided to step outside of the box and try a cool look for the back of the quilt. I just loved those bright colors on the dark brown background.
I will be sharing at the following link parties this week:
