“Spring Migration” QAL – Step 6

27 04 2015


This is the final step in our “Spring Migration” Quilt A-Long. Thanks for reading along (those of you who didn’t make the quilt). And thanks for sewing along (those of you who accepted the challenge). Remember that a link to all the instructions for “Spring Migration” is on the Patterns page of this blog.

Step 6 is Finishing your quilt:  Quilting, Binding, and Labeling

I have some examples of possible quilting designs; I trust you to bind and label your quilt without my instructions.

To contrast with the straight lines of the rectangles, squares and triangles, you could select a curvy quilting design. I quilted freehand spirals on one of my quilts.


Or, to “copy” the straight lines of the patchwork pieces, you could select a linear quilting design. I used a pantograph for my second “Spring Migration.” (JRPANTO15 Modern Simplicity by Jodi Robinson & Digi-tech Designs, LLC)


Here’s a close-up of the backs of the quilts.


Which quilting design style do you favor for your quilt? Curvy or linear?

Beautiful quilts! I favor the front of the straight quilted quilt and the back with the curves. A pair of quilts is a wonderful thing!

Pieced the borders last night. Hoping to attach during little bits of time this week and quilt this weekend. I’ll send you a picture when it’s done. Thanks for sharing.

Where can I find the striped fabric on this quilt?
