Update on my Iceland quilt

I used a walking foot to quilt the Iceland quilt.  I quilted using wavy lines that were close together.  Even though I have already trimmed the quilt, I think that I will make the edges wavy and then put a facing on the quilt instead of a binding.  I am going to use a facing technique from Vikki Pignatelli (“Quilting by Improvisation”).  I took a quilting workshop with Vikki a few years ago.

Once the facing is on, I am going to make a second quilt using Kona cotton – medium gray color – and make this quilt  larger than the Iceland quilt.  I will add some skinny strips around the edges of the the gray quilt.  I am still thinking about the design.  Once this quilt is quilted, I will then attach the Iceland quilt to the background quilt.  I saw this technique in Jean Wells’ book – “Intuitive Color & Design”.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna

  1. Facing was a new term to me. I had to google it, and realize that it is a technique I’ve been seeing with art quilts more and more often. Now, I have a new technique to try. I think I’ll make a little “throw away” thing to work on, as my first attempt!

    I’m looking forward to seeing how yours works out. Thanks for teaching me something new!
