My Summer Games quilt is finished. I completed the binding in my hotel room in Denver and showed the quilt to those at the Electric Quilt Academy during my lecture on Friday night. And now I would like to share it with you.
By the way, I am totally sold on the 3 day immersion program for expanding your Electric Quilt skills. I taught the beginner class. My students were awesome and by the end were confidently drafting blocks in Easy Draw, importing fabrics from the internet and even creating a Row by Row quilt.
It was also great having Electric Quilt staff in the classroom to answer questions and assist students as well.
Back to the Summer Games quilt.
This week I thought I would share close ups of the quilted sporting blocks. When quilting these blocks, I tried to come up with textures that would complement the design. I outlined many of the shapes. Most of the work was done freehand. This technique works equally well on longarm machines and domestic sewing machines. There are some wobbles as a result -- but I don't think it detracts from the overall look of the quilt.
Next week I will share how I created some of the specialized quilting designs for the other blocks.
