I taught my Don't Fear the Longarm class this weekend at The Longarm Network and delivered this sample for my Fill 'Er Up class that's schedule for July 29. This class is open to stand up and sit down quilters, whether you use a longarm, sit down longarm or a domestic machine.
I love the Longarm Network Shop. It's very clean and bright so I wanted to make a sample that would look good hanging in the shop. This is the Citrus Gradient slashed and sewn back together with strips of a black and white print. I wanted to showcase a lot of different fill motifs and felt that something unsymmetrical would be much more fun to quilt.
I was right!
I used lots of different types of motifs and different types of thread. I wanted to show how much the color, value, weight and shininess of thread affects the impact of the stitching.
Some threads are almost invisible and some make the stitching a distinct design element.
