Quilt It Challenge – March

Quilt It Challenge March

I started March’s block with straight line quilting squares around the blocks of color changes and then quilted the same way on point. It became the frame for my next step.

The filler or paisley inspiration is from Kati over at http://katisquilting.blogspot.com/. She had posted a picture of her paisley quilting pattern on Twitter. I really like the way it looked and thought it would be a good way to finish up my block for March.

It was a new stitch for me and it was so easy and fun.

I love the texture.

This Quilt It Challenge is something Kitty Pearl over at Road Home Quilting and I are doing. We are working towards a whole cloth quilt. When I look at the back, I see that I really have a mini version.

Thank you, Kati for the inspiration and encouragement.

Where have you found inspiration lately?

Enjoy the Journey,

    It came out gorgeous, Jackie! I love the design you created with the straight lines, it looks a little bit like trapunto. Whole cloth quilts are my very favorites, my jaw always drops when I see one :)))
