Getting Up Close with My Quilting --- Paisley Swirly Quilting on Three Quilts

The Paisley Swirly Quilting works great on just about any quilt from modern to traditional.  I like it best on the modern bright quilts.

Here it is on a more traditional looking quilt.

The next quilt is the same quilt pattern using more modern fabrics.

This is not quilted with a computerized quilting machine and it is not a panto graph.  I free style (free motion) quilt every quilt I quilt. I manually move my quilting machine like a pencil across the quilt to create the Paisley Swirly Quilting.

 It is a great choice for an overall quilting for just about any quilt!  It creates a soft swirly motion throughout the whole quilt.  The quilting softens the straight lines of the quilt.

And it also gives the quilting a fun and whimsical look!

All three quilts are customer's quilts.  The second and the third quilts were mystery quilts from last year at Quilt's by Barb's Quilt Retreat.

Enjoy your day!

Just beautiful, Marcia. I love the comment that your husband said, "Find something you love to do, do what you love, and make it your job. You will never feel like you are working - if you love it!"
That is so similar to what my husband says, "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life." Smart guys!

The swirls DO look great on every quilt. Your quilting is so pretty...I'm glad you told me it was free motion. You do such a good job it looks like a computer did it!
