25" x 39"

Where does your quilting lead you? Do you follow the flow by quilting along the design of the fabric? Do you stitch in the ditch? Do you meander across the quilt just hoping to get done?
There are so many options and each quilt is another opportunity to try a new approach. In Lizard Tails, I ignored the fabric design and the block piecing and quilted flowing lines across the entire quilt top. It was a liberating experience not to feel constrained by the pattern of the quilt.
I used a variegated thread that changed from chartreuse to orange, a perfect choice. How did Signature Threads know exactly what I would need?
These quilting lines only led to more opportunities for additional details. Hand embroidery added texture to the open spaces between the machine quilting.
