Kaleido Quilted

MeanderI’m not sure if this was mistake or not, but I decided on an all over meander pattern to quilt this.  Things I thought of doing, but didn’t:

  • Straight-ish lines
  • A grid
  • Swirly circle things
  • More snowflakes
  • Some combination of all of the above.

Kaleidoscope Snowflake Quilt

I decided on the safe meander route.  Here I’ve posting things about taking risks and not being ‘regular’ and here I am not following my own council.  But I went with meander because this has ended up being quite a large quilt – 98″x72″ and I was concerned that I’d never be able to execute any of the above in a decent sort of way over that large a surface area.

Excuses, excuses, rationalization, excuses.  To me, the craftsmanship and execution of an idea is as important as the taking the risk.  And I knew I could do a good meander. So there.

    Are you going to show us a full view with all the little added snowflakes? What I can see looks great. What did you use for binding? I have been thinking about how to quilt mine. I’m sure it will be straight lines of some sort because I have not mastered free-motion quilting yet 🙂

    I also want to see the full quilt. The meandering quilting looks great. IF I ever get mine finished….I think I may let the quilter decide what would look best for the quilting!

    Full quilt photos are coming though you’ll see in tonight’s post that I’m going to retake them again. I used Kona Cotton in Ash for the binding. I wanted a bit of contrast from all that white, and the rest of the solids are Kona Cotton as well. Ash is a color that is in some of the big Kaleidoscope Snowflakes so I think it all ties together nicely.
