Default Twin Needle Quilted Quilt

I couldn't cut up my own original fabric designed with Spoonflower site. So, I used 2 yards for major part of this quilt. I had 2-3 solids selected for borders, but decided quilt was busy enough and went with the one. Now, how to quilt. Not a lot of options for me, just straight line stitching, so, I FMQ following the irregular space between clusters. Then used painter's tape to mark a straight line between those. On the border, I broke out the twin needle and 2 different variegated threads. 3 rounds of serpentine stitching and finished with coordinating automated stitch for binding. I had to slow down my speed because I was asking a lot from my needles! Before I finished the binding, I could hear the plunk, plunk, plunking of dull twin needles, and I was hoping they would hold up til the end! Best of all, when I ordered new twin needles, I found metallic thread twins also!

So bright and cheerful! Happy Spring! Using double needles to quilt it was a great idea! Varigated thread looks great and matches your fabric beautifully!

So glad you came up with a gorgeous solution to your own fabric. I'm still blown away by your clever idea to use Spoonflower for your "art work". Love your twin needle idea to embellish this wonder.

Well that’s really pretty! I can see why you wouldn’t want to cut up the fabric - it’s beautiful

When you use twin needles to quilt with, do you get a zigzag pattern of thread on the back?

I wouldn't have wanted to cut that fabric, either - to make bags, maybe, but not patchwork. It came out just beautiful and I like your decorative stitch quilting, too.
