Wavy Line Free Motion Quilting with LOTS of Thread Color Changes

Sometimes you have a quilt where you want the fabric to be the star of the show.

That was the case with Interlocking Triangles, our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie pattern featuring Impressions by Melissa Marie Collins for Windham Fabrics. The fabric designs and colors are just so stunning that I designed an entire quilt pattern to show them off.

If I would have quilted the whole thing with one neutral thread to match the background, that would have taken away from the fabric, so there was only one choice … match the quilting thread to every single triangle in the quilt!

In this video I show in real time you how I quilted wavy lines into every triangle to mimic the look of the swirl fabric design. Then I turned the camera into time lapse mode so you could see how I constantly rolled back and forth to change threads so the texture would be consistent across the quilt, but the thread choice wouldn’t take away from the fabric design.
