Katie made this version and had me quilt it before the release so I wasn't able to share it just yet.
Following the lead of how Angela quilted the original and tweaking it a bit I think it came out stunning.
As you can see there are a lot of straight line echoes, I did some freehand but it is very easy to Bobble freehand diagonals...So, meet my beloved IQ:
This quilt was quilted about 25% freehand with rulers and 75%IQ. This doesn't mean that I was able to just walk away and let Einstein do all the work. No sir. I plugged in every point I wanted the needle to hit and the IQ calculated straight lines between those points...IQ also stitched very straight lines,even diagonal straight lines.
Have I mentioned how much I love my IQ?
Anyone with an IQ who is curious, I used Line pattern, marking the quilt manually.
I'm quite sure there is an easier/faster way, an echo path maybe? But I like the organic feel of this approach.
Katie used AMH velveteen on the back and she describes it like butter....agreed.
