Getting Up Close with Meandering with a Twist!

When I first started quilting nine years ago, I decided I wanted to add a twist to meandering.  I wanted it to be special.  Not just plain meandering.
I add leaves, groupings of leaves, and leaves with little swirls.



Meandering with leaves is one of the most popular choices of quilting.  


I also add flowers, swirls, hearts, stars, and many other little doodles to the meandering. Of course, not all in the same quilt. The fabric or the pattern of the quilt usually helps me decide what little doodle fits best.
Adding a little twist makes the meandering unique.
Have a wonderful day!
