I originally posted this quilt under Rodanthe Rainbow - Just need to figure out how to quilt it! and asked for suggestions on how to quilt it, because I was intimidated by this quilt. I loved the piecing and didn't want to ruin it!
I finally hunkered down and decided my original idea of different elements in the colors would work, if I didn't overdo it. I used the elements of fire, water, sun, air, ground (mountain), heat, and plants. I'm not going to identify which is which, I'll let you decide for yourself!
I love the final look of this quilt, and although it came out a little bigger than planned, I appreciate that there is a lot of room under it, for I live with a cover thief!
I learned a lot quilting this top. I learned I can do "fancy" free motion and it looks fine to me. I even enjoyed doing it! I learned to pace myself, and most especially not to fear my quilt!
