I debated doing some freehand continuous curves on this top but in the end went with a pantograph. I’ve gotten kind of lazy about my quilting in the years the longarm and I were separated. I had a lot to accomplish in a short amount of time when I was in GA and didn’t do much experimenting with new freehand quilting designs. I want to change that this year but first I have to have things settle down around here so I can focus.
I loaded the Dutch Pinwheels yesterday and got it quilted today – the pantograph is another old one, Surf’s Up by Dave Hudson.
Piecing some Quick Strippies will help with the quilting experiments later too as I originally drafted that quilt just so I could practice my quilting when I got my first longarm back in 2002.
