The Bike Quilt!

Earlier this year I had a small break between customer quilts, so I was able to work on something of my own! This was right after QuiltCon, and I was motivated to become better at quilting without my stitch regulator.

I pulled out this quilt top, which included everything from straight lines to stitch in the ditch and curves! It was a great piece to practice on, and I think it turned out quite well.

I quilted straight lines in the background areas, switching up the direction of the lines, the spacing, etc. In the curves pieces I used lots of different quilting designs.

Some of the quilting is hard to see in the printed fabrics, so here are some pics of the back!

This quilt finished at sort of an odd size (I think it's about 60" square). Perhaps I'll hang it in my studio with the backside facing out. There are so many great quilting designs on here that It will likely provide great inspiration!
