This quilt is a major milestone in my free-motion quilting journey. The quilting is inspired by this Angela Walters video where she quilts a bear quilt for Tula Pink. She does a variety of dense designs for the background, some medium-scale wavy lines for the bears and some large feathers going in and out behind the bear blocks.
I quilted simple wavy lines in the colored diamonds, some tight border designs in the area between the diamonds and a few large feathers to the right and the bottom in the wide negative space.
I already blogged about the quilt top here where I called it stalactites. I’m renaming it to wedding bells. It reminds me of beautiful, festive Indian weddings with colorful and fragrant flower garlands decorating the hall, and men and women milling around in colorful Indian attire.
