Quilting Frames and Fillers - Block 1

Whoop! Whoop! It's June and I am going to start a new YouTube quilting series.

The real motivation behind this series is my desire to stretch my free-motion muscles and have a little reset.  It's easy for us to get comfortable and fall into a design rut.  I spend the majority of my quilting time on client quilts (full-time, unless I'm making YouTube videos).  And I felt like I needed to have a little breather and quilt something not so serious. 

So I present my Frames and Fillers Quilting Series where I will let a spinny wheel decide my free-motion fate!  I've loaded this spinning wheel up with 32 designs, some I know well, and others I don't.  You can watch the first video here:

And if you want to make your own quilt like mine and quilt out some of these frame and filler ideas you can find a download here:

 This is the sketch for the first block of this series

 And stitched out.

SPOLIER WARNING, this is what the block looks like after the spinny wheel decided 

I was thrilled about the rainbow design for this quilt block, also it is one of the ones that I haven't stitched out in such a long time.  I forgot how nice it can look and the great texture it brings to a quilt top.  The spiral feather design is one I don't even remember if I've ever stitched.  Looking at it critically I think I will not be using it.  I find it a little busy and not easy to predict where it will land.  Maybe if I had a bigger space it would work well.  It might also look good on a busy fabric.   

I hope you enjoyed the first week of my summer series, Happy June and Happy PRIDE too!
