Midweek Makers #115

Ready for another Midweek Makers? Write a new project post and come share it here today!

Midweek Makers

I have a bit of quilting to share from my latest spring project:

more lines! Seems I'm trending that these days, but really, I think it's just me. I remember what Angela Walters said in a class, "there are two kinds of quilters - curvy or straight line.  You're either one or the other." That was years ago, and the more I quilt, the more I fall into the straight line category. Her theory really is a pretty good assessment of quilting styles - which one do you fall into?

This week I'm featuring stars, being a bit liberal in that interpretation! Let's have a look, shall we?

  1. Hi Susan,
    Not a tulip but definitely a pretty Spring flower. I love the straight line quilting. I would have to say I fall within the boundaries of that camp. I always think straight stitching it looks so crisp and perfect on a quilt. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. It's taken me a while to figure out where I stand, though I really think I go back and forth between curvy and straight.

  2. Loving the new quilt! Really, I'm both, but I think I lean more toward curves if I had to pick one!

    1. Thanks Sandra! Hoping to finish up the quilt this week. Straight lines, and micro stippling are taking a long time.

  3. It's interesting that I would say curves in quilting when I have straight lines in piecing. Do we choose the opposite motif for balance? Looking at your pattern it has actually curves and implied curves, and you've done SLQ. I'm curious what everyone else has to say.

    1. I think you're spot on with opposite motifs for balance. That's what I usually consider when working up a quilting design.

  4. I do not FMQ, therefore I am not a curvy line quilter. I'd definitely fall into the straight line kind. But then since straight lines are overrated (I cannot really keep them straight since I am zipping through them so fast) all my lines curve ever so gently :-) So I am a blurred lines quilter :-D

  6. Ooo, now I love Angela Walters, but I think I'm a bit of both, while I love quilting wavy lines over the whole front, if I have the time I also love clean evenly spaced straight lines.. thanks so much for featuring my Hoop Art Flower :)

  9. I'm also in the straight line category - but then again, I only quilt very small items myself. The rest go to my daughter or my LAQ, both whom I love dearly!
