Here is another project that I recently finished. This quilt uses 3 panels. Two of the panels are cut into strips with background fabric using the Ricky Tims Convergence block technique.
I will eventually be teaching the process in a workshop at Quilters Common in Wakefield, but for now the pattern is available at the shop, or you can purchase a digital version of the pattern in my etsy shop.
I quilted this with a pantograph. The one I used is called flames, but I loaded the quilt on my longarm frame so that the panto actually looks like clouds/waves to complement the panel.
I used Patricia Ritter’s Bauhaus pantograph for this quilt. I know, I know, I should have just free motion quilted, but I am a big wimp and do not trust my skills for keeping things even and consistent.
I want more time to practice and play! But, I am happy with what I have accomplished with this quilt.
I started this Lorax quilt quilt ages ago. I quilted it as planned with the Zephyr, panto that looks like the Truffula trees .. and then it just hung out on the quilt frame like clothes on a tread mill for months! Finally during my unexpected break from work I got around to putting the binding on it.
I suppose it is controversial to quilt right over the Lorax but I don’t think it matters to him. Think of it as a screen overlay and don’t worry about adding a panto over a panel. I think it works just fine.
