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?
