I didn’t make a ton of progress on my Bungle Jungle modern quilt this week, mostly because I was packing up to go on our family vacation and getting all my ducks in a row ahead of time.
(They are quacking nicely now!)
But, I did get all of my stitch in the ditch quilting done so I’m ready for the best part, the free motion quilting next week!
I think my plan will be to quilt a different motif in each charm square, to practice a bunch of free-motion quilting designs.
I want to add tons more quilting. By pressing the seams open, stitching in the ditch in between the charm squares was a breeze. It created a grid over the surface of the quilt which you can see on the back side of the quilt. Click for closeups.
I used an acrylic ruler and a blue washout pen to mark straight lines where needed to complete the grid.
The quilt is now anchored so I can remove the rest of my basting pins and it’s ready for more quilting!
