Quote Quilt Quilting Motifs


 I'm still quilting the Quote Quilt, and wanted to show you some of the quilting motifs I have added. I am trying to keep the quilting simple, but still try to add some texture and interest. I am doing this by echoing the existing shape, but sometimes I add simple shapes or a little bit extra.

This picture is upside down, but I think you will be able to get enough of an idea without standing on your head.

The watering can is is one of the stencil shapes. I managed to resist the urge to fill in or add anything extra to these shapes.

I stitched in the ditch, or somewhat nearby the ditch to surround the quotes. I wanted to make sure you could still read them so I tried to avoid stitching in the blocks.

I'm close to halfway on the quilt.

Great progress! This is going to be such a memorable quilt. I bet you'll miss working on it.

I like how you are quilting it...this is one quilt I would love to see in person. But bet it would take a long time to really 'see' it all.

Such fun details you've added. It's going to be a quilt you need to see up close to appreciate.
