I had a couple of people email to ask for the quilting design info on the easy-peasy flower I posted today.
So I drew it out – It works great on simple tops like this that have lots of busy, girly prints.
As usual, please disregard my lousy drawing skills – Start with a swirl – bump out “petals” almost all the way around – echo back about half way and into the next swirl. In the previous quilt I worked all the way across the top continuously and then back. The squares were smallish; maybe 4 or 5 inches so I was able to do two or three rows working back and forth before rolling the quilt top to then next section. Anyway, that’s why the flowers switch direction with each row.
The bottom rows in in pic show a swirl up and then a swirl down. As you can see I did not echo the petals in this variation. I found it easier to go from up to down swirls when I didn’t echo. I am not sure why. But you can try it both ways :-)
