Dwirling ~ Machine Quilting


I try to limit each post to just a subject or two, otherwise it's too hard to follow. Here is the I spy with dwirling. You just free motion quilt a wavy line across the quilt top, then echo it an even distance away, and throw in a loopy curl or extra "finger" once in a while for variety. I quilted this with a variegated primary color thread and made the lines about an inch apart. Since I anticipate this will be used and washed a lot, I didn't want to take a lot of time for fancy quilting. This is such a simple design that it doesn't detract from the novelty squares. Easy and quick.
