Free Motion Friday - Double Arches

I've decided to call the design for today Double Arches.  You can easily do it as single arches, but the doubling makes it easier to see.  However, if you're going to do it small as a background filler singles could be faster.

The written directions can be found here.

Start by stitching in the ditch around your block.  Then make an arch of any size.  Echo the arch 1/4 inch away from the original arch.

Backtrack to where you want to start your next arch and make another.  Then echo it.  Repeat this process.

One thing I tried to think about as I was making this pattern was to alternate which way the arches were going.  Sometimes I made them left, sometimes right,   I also alternated sideways and upside down too just to make it more free form.

And the final results.  I love this one and can't wait to use it!

I hope you get to quilt today!
