Getting Up Close with Free Style Special Area Quilting

Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts  was one of the two $50.00 winners from the "My Favorite Block Quilt Along" that was hosted by Kim at Persimon DreamsErin was the other winner. I will share the photos of the quilting on Erin's quilt tomorrow. Erin posts at Fallergirl Blog.

Sharon chose brown prints with a few highlight colors for her quilt. A variety of light and medium and dark fabrics.  I chose a medium brown for the quilting thread.

When you make a Block of the Month or a Sampler Quilt there are so many different quilt blocks. The Free Style Special Area Quilting is a perfect choice.  This way you can highlight the special details of each block with a background of meandering. I chose meandering with a twist - meandering with leaves and swirls for the background filler.  I quilted swirls and wiggle lines for the special areas in each block.  The quilt is completed with a border of leaves all chained together to frame the quilt.

I took photos of every block.  The quilting gives this quilt a whimsical feeling!


Sharon will be posting about her quilt this week too!  Hop over and check it out ---  Vrooman's Quilts.

And tomorrow I will post Erin's quilt!

Enjoy your day!
