When I was new at DSM quilting, a number of bloggers asked me for "help" with stitches, ideas, designs, or suggestions, etc., so here are a few closeups of various quilting I did on this quilt. Since it's a very straightforward "sensible" little quilt, I kept my stitches "sensible".
The "jaggedy" stitching in the dark area was fun, as I had lively music playing, helping to keep the rhythm. It works well for me to always do an extra stitch before I change directions - that keeps the stitches neat and sharp at corners. I did loops and hearts/leaves in the lights and short jaggedy lines in the dark. Around the edges in the triangle areas I did a feathery-viney thingy.
These squares finish at 1 1/4 inch. I had purchased a DVD from Jackie Robinson, demonstrating her technique called Strip and Slash and watched it numerous times for both inspiration and relaxation.
