Getting Up Close with My Quilting --- Circles and Swirls for Kim


Update: June 6, 2015 
I am super excited for Kim Lapacek​ 's Modern Log Cabin Quilt that is going to the International Quilt Festival​ in Houston 2015.  I am so proud, that I quilted her quilt and that is going to the Festival! Kim posted about on her Blog  Persimon Dreams and facebook. 

Scroll down to see all the up close photos of the quilting.


I had so much fun taking photos of Kim's quilt.  I flipped it over, I rolled it, and I just kinda bunched it up as if you would crawl under it and cuddle up on a cold Wisconsin night.





Kim had a vision for the quilting and sent it along with her quilt.  The circles were too large to swing them around over 16" to have them intersect like her photo.  I added some swirls in the border and repeated them where the circles meet.  What a fun way to quilt a quilt!

Enjoy!
Marcia

Your quilting is excellent, but I'm curious to know how you do it? Do you quilt by hand or machine? Do you trace the pattern on or do it freehand?
