This first quilt (above) I quilted with a free-motion flower pattern. I saw the quilt after it was bound and went through the wash. The relatively dense quilting puckered up and gave the quilt a lot of texture -- exactly the feel we were hoping to achieve! This has been one of my favorite quilts to quilt so far, simply because the "blooms" pattern flows in such a nice rhythm.
This second quilt I used a Baptist Fan pattern, again mostly wanting to give the quilt texture in the open spaces without detracting from the prints and piecework.This pattern is a little more technically challenging but satisfying in a different sort of way.
