I'm making a determined effort this month to spend more time getting comfortable with free motion quilting on my new Juki machine. My first finished project is this Rainbow LeMoyne Row Quilt.
The blocks in this quilt were made in 2014 as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I made 6" LeMoyne Star blocks throughout the year, and ended up with about 75 of them by the end of the year. Most were used to make two earlier quilt tops, which you can see HERE and HERE. Both of those tops are still unquilted.
Last December I ran across the remaining LeMoyne Star blocks and decided to make them into a row quilt alternating the light and dark backgrounds. I started quilting it in January of this year, but set it aside halfway through. I finally finished the last quilting a couple days ago, added the binding, and washed it up.
Here's the back of the quilt, featuring bright, fun animal prints. I've had these fabrics in my stash since 1999!
You can get a closer look at the background and sashing fabrics in this shot.
The blocks are quilted with continuous curves on the star diamonds. The background areas are filled with spirals, and the sashing has "parallel" wavy lines.
Most of the quilting is easier to see on the quilt back.
I have no plans for who will get this little quilt, but I sure am glad to have it finished! It's time for me to choose another top that's ready to be quilted.
