Balls of string?

Couldn’t sleep so I quilted a Twisted Happy Block top pieced by Deborah. I thought the double loopy meander kind of looked like balls of string which would be appropriate for this top where all the centers are different cat fabrics.

    I like that quilting pattern. Did you free motion it or is there a panto? I don’t do very well with pantos so I’d probably FM it anyway.

    cute variation. I do a background fill similar to that…only on a much smaller scale.

    You could also use it for bubbles.

    This is a great simple but effective quilting design. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Love the colors of that quilt and the quilting looks great. Ya know, even I might be able to do that one free-hand.

    I’m sure the “twisted cats” are enjoying their curly strings! The quilting is awesome.

    What a clever idea, the pattern does look like balls of string. It’s really effective.

    Mary, Just wanted to say I thought of you all day yesterday (Tues.) and hope you are having a Happy Brithday! 😉 I know you enjoyed your cisit at the spa… too bad we couldn't all meet at one of these for a girls day out together and chat about quilt ideas while we had our pedicures and massages 🙂

    Love from Texas!
