This is just a basic Disappearing 9 Patch design but I arranged it so that it appears to have a bit of a border to it. Besides the fact that this quilt is LOUD and CRAZY I am extremely happy with the quilting option that I tried on this one. I wasn't sure about it at first, but now I am loving it.
I used my newly acquired machine and quilted using one of the embroidery stitches available on it. I had seen this type of quilting done in some book from the library (that I can't remember now which book), but it added a different element to the quilt's look.
I just have to say that doing this type of quilting will take MUCH more thread that you think. I had originally bought 2 spools of Gütermann (110 yds. each) thinking that would be plenty. WRONG!! I ended up having to use 7 spools! (that would be 4 regular Coats & Clarks 250 yd. spools). When I went back to get more they were all out--and although they had some ordered they didn't know when exactly it would arrive in stock. Who knew that khaki/avocado green would be THE popular color of the week? I ended up hunting down more spools at another store. They held every spool they had in stock and then I drove more miles than I probably should have to get them so I could finish this project.
