Journal Quilt #15

For some reason, I found this week's journal quilt a struggle to create. Perhaps my muse was on a coffee break when I was trying to be creative. I will have to have a talk with her. Any way, here it is...

Springing Out (Journal Quilt #15)
Mistyfused cotton fabrics, free-motion quilting, decorative stitching around outer edges

See more journal quilts here.

I've started quilting on the doodle flower quilt and I'm almost done.  All I have left is to figure out how I want to quilt the black and white squares along the bottom.  Here is a detail photo on how I quited the background.  

This is a new-to-me quilting design and I absolutely loved stitching it out.  I learned this one from Patsy Thompson.  It is a great filler design and very fun to stitch.  I was sort of sad when I ran out of background to quilt.


  1. Love this simple but simply delightful quilting design. I've alread taken pencil to paper to see if I can mimic it....!

  2. What a great idea - I love the way it adds a sense of motion and dimension without being too "in your face" about it! Beautiful!

  3. Great quilting design, Terri--it absolutely looks like fun to do!

  4. LOVE what you are doing with the Doodle Flower quilt.
