I started this quilt last January and completed the top and then put the quilt top in my UFO box. Earlier this month I decided to practice some free motion quilting so I pulled out the quilt. The Rainbow Star quilt pattern is free on Leah Day’s website (leahday.com). When you cut out this quilt pattern, you have enough to make 2 quilt tops. On Leah Day’s website, you will find the directions to make this quilt and also information about how to quilt the top using free motion quilting and straight line quilting with a walking foot. She has great videos on her website for free motion quilting designs. These are the quilting designs that I used: pink – modern weave, purple – chain of pearls, blue – Poseidon’s eye, teal – flowing feathers leaves, green – fern and stem, yellow – lemonade, orange – snake paisley, and red – ocean currents. For the square corners and triangle sections, I used ideas from Angela Walters’ book: Shape by Shape free motion quilting.
I had fun with the free motion quilting designs. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
