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
