Part 2: Machine quilting!
Once I had P and J’s quilt all assembled, I started on the machine quilting. I wanted to quilt each pinwheel. I used three different quilting patterns.
One: I sewed across each “pin” of the pinwheel.
Two: I sewed down the center of each equilateral triangle.
Three: I sewed around the inside of the wheel, from inner corner to inner corner.
I used a teal thread on all of them, I think, although it shows up slightly darker in some of the pictures. I made some kind of pattern with the three different styles of quilting but I don’t remember what the pattern was. Here’s a bunch of pictures of the machine quilting:
Here’s the fabric I used for the back:
I think it’s beautiful. You can sort of see the way the quilting shows up on the back.
Next time I’ll cover the hand quilting!
