Mary was so concerned about the 3-D pinwheels on her quilt and whether or not I’d be able to quilt around them. Well, if I were using a pantograph, I wouldn’t be able to quilt it, because the design wouldn’t work with the pinwheels. But, since I was quilting a freehand Edge to Edge (E2E), I was able to work around them.
It was a large quilt. Can you tell? You can see a close-up of the pinwheels here. I wonder how she put those pinwheels in there so they’d pop up like that!
The swirly quilting is supposed to emulate wind blowing.
So, of course I had to add a cloud with Mr. Wind blowing. Okay… I know… Well, I TRIED to make it look like a cloud blowing some wind.
Well, it looks better on the back…
Okay… fail on Mr. Cloud, so I decided to add some kites.
And, you can see a couple more surprises better when you look at the back.
I love doing Edge to Edge quilting. It’s so much easier for me to sneak stuff in. 😉
