I finished quilting this jungle wall hanging today, but it's still not finished. I need to bind it and will get to that later. I wanted to share something that I think is really exciting.
I joined the American Quilter Society a couple years ago and have been receiving their magazine 6 times per year (I think). It is a great magazine and one of my favorite parts is Lori Kennedy's "My Line" article. If you haven't seen her quilting designs, you need to check out her blog here.
Her article in the January 2019 issue caught my attention because it was a fish design. I've used some of her designs before (I don't remember if I had told you all about who invented them or not). It is amazing to me how easy they are to follow. She shows what to do for each step.
I decided to quilt the fish around the border. You can't see them very well because of the colored strips, but I took some close up pictures. They aren't perfect, but I like them a lot. These first 2 pictures show how I quilted the panel. I quilted around the animals and along lines of other things, like the leaves and anything that I could follow lines on. I didn't quilt on everything - that would have taken forever!
Maybe you can see where I quilted along the outside of the elephant and more on his ear. Also the sea weed above and below his trunk.
Here's a close up of a fish in the top corner of the border.
The view from the back.
I hope if you are doing your own quilting, that this might give you some ideas and that you will check out Lori's blog.
I still haven't made my goal list, but I'm thinking about it. Maybe this week I will take a few minutes to write down a list of my UFOs. Thanks for visiting!
