My Madrona Road challenge quilt is quilted! I’m a bit rusty so I’m calling this “wonky quilting” and I’m okay with letting go a bit for this one. I think this quilt will end up on my office wall in the end and I love how free it is. You know how sometimes you look at a quilt and it just seems uptight? I like to think this quilt is the antithesis of that. It’s my first modern quilt and I love it.
The leaves were raw edge appliqued down just by quilting on top of them. Easy! They’ll get raggy over time. I brushed the edges out a bit with my fingernails to get them started.
I wanted to keep the squares that the string leaves were cut out of and turn them into blocks. It was fun quilting leaves inside the open areas.
