I have had such fun quilting this project made with Island Batik's Steam Engine collection.
With this project I have decided to let the fabrics inspire my free motion quilting choices. For this gray fabric I chose to do random squares.
This gray got a zigzag/chevron motif.
On this fabric I was trying to decide which color thread to use. The funny thing is I chose neither of these colors. I figure you want to see it, so I used blue instead.
The blue looks great, doesn't it?
For this chain link fabric I made arches on the bottom.
And then when back and made them from the top too. Super easy to do and a great texture was created.
For this purple fans fabric I chose to do a few classic feathers.
And feathers in these two purple connected rectangles as well.
For this gear fabric I tried to make gears. Three arches with a chunky arch in the middle. It's hard to see, but it was fun to do.
This piece was so large I made three gear arches.
