Blue Freewheeling Single Girl Quilt

In Spring 2016 I attended Sewtopia in Atlanta. One of the classes was with Denyse Schmidt to make the Freewheeling Single Girl Quilt.

For the rings, I used a variety of blue prints from Carolyn Friedlander to Alison Glass and Cotton and Steel. For the background, I used different grays, blacks, charcoals and metallic Essex Linen fabrics. The piecing was done using Aurifil 50 wt thread.


For the quilting, I echoed the shape of the rings in the background, while leaving the rings unquilted. When I was tired of quilting echoed lines, I decided to throw in a few other free motion designs. I think the various quilting designs add texture to the quilt. The quilting was done with charcoal grey Aurifil 50 wt thread.

I used the blue octopus Cotton and Steel fabric for the backing. The quilt was bound in scraps left over from the blue fabrics.
