I had exactly one day to quilt Celestial, our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt. So I needed a quilting design that was both fast, and would do justice to the spectacular diamonds throughout the quilt. I ended up with something I lovingly called the Wavy Line Special.
I followed the shape of the diamonds to quilt five wavy lines inside of each diamond in the quilt blocks, and seven inside each of the background diamonds. It was super fast and easy with just a little bit of rulerwork to travel in the diamonds.
The result was being able to quilt a large lap in about six hours and create a custom free motion quilting design. I absolutely love how it turned out, as the lines appear to be radiating out from the center of the star.
I hope you enjoy seeing how I accomplished the design and how you too can create a fast quilting design without making it look like a wide open edge-to-edge design.
