Little Basket Quilt

I finished another little quilt -

This is a Jo Morton pattern. The quilt is 20" x 24" and the basket blocks are 3".
Wendy (Inky Threads) and I each made the quilt (she finished her's a while ago)- her's is here.

I used cotton batting, with 100Wt Invisafil thread for the quilting.

Tip - Recently some people have asked me how to progress from meandering to other designs when free motion quilting. Continuous Curve, as shown in the above photo, are a great progression. I have found that they are a fabulous quilting design to develop good control of where you are stitching - something that is very important when quilting feathers (click here for more details).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Another outstanding finish!!! I ventured into FMQ!!! Sorta by default. I had marked a quilt with long slightly curved lines, but for some reason my feed dogs were not working correctly. So, I put on the darning foot, dropped the dogs and voila - I've started!! Got a long way to go, and I'm sure I will be checking in on your blog a lot for tips!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Such a sweet little quilt. I am very happy to have seen this. I have a little basket quilt I am about to tackle and I have been struggling with quilting ideas. This is very helpful. And thanks for the link to the continuous curve tiutorial!

Lovely Joanne, I like the way you have continuous curved ALL the triangles - very effective and the hint about using them to travel is one to remember.
