Meringue Quilting Plan

Meringue Quilting Plan

With a quilt top complete, that means it’s time to come up with a quilting plan, right? I have been watching YouTube videos to learn more about Procreate, the app on my iPad that I use to help doodle ideas for quilting, and one of the things I learned recently is that I can export a timelapse video of my work. I still have a bit to learn (I don’t know if I can make the quality of the video any better, for instance), but this is a pretty neat progression showing my thought process. Note: I definitely recommend enlarging to full screen to be able to see the detail.

I don’t have any control over the speed things appear in the timelapse. At the very end, it gets a bit grainy because I’m toggling back and forth trying to decide if I should add some echo quilting.

So above is the baseline quilting plan. I really like how the straight lines in the curve stars make them look like they are bulging a bit; I think it’s a fun optical illusion.

And here is the choice: do I add a few extra lines of echo quilting? I think I’m starting to solidify in my choice, but I’d love to know your thoughts. Do you prefer the quilting with or without the echo quilting?

    The echo quilting gives the design a little more pop.

    Quilting plan looks great. I like the echos but perhaps leave those for last and decide then. 🙂

  7. Julie Vogel says:

    I like the echos!

  8. I like the echos, but what about having the grid begin where the echoes end? The plan is perfect, and, it will be gorgeous no matter how you do it!

  9. Suzanne says:

    Absolutely with the echos! They look really cool and I wonder how they would look if you added a few more and made the spacing between them somewhat narrow to begin with and expanding the spaces as you go? What do you think?

  10. Personally I like echoing. Judy (remember her? grin) studied for I believe an entire weekend with Gina Perkes, who said echo, echo, echo. Three times minimum.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
