Cogs - Work in Progress update

I have spent a little more time quilting the doll quilt.

Quilting in Progress

It's providing a break from what is turning out to be a more-stressful-than-necessary move.  I'm not sure why I expected my often dishonest, negligent landlords to behave any differently now that they are selling the house and I am trying to gracefully leave this house ... sigh.

Detail of in-progresss Doll quilt.I originally had a different plan for the quilting, but the idea of using a variety of designs based on a equilateral triangle grid took hold ... here's a closer look at the first two.  Both are unmarked, using a ruler.

(I haven't decided how to quilt the centers of the "cogs"or if/how to quilt the ghost cogs.)

I am joining the lists for:

Scraptastic Tuesday (June)
Esther's WOW (Wips on Wednesday)
Let's Bee Social on Sew Fresh Quilts
WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced

Wow! I didn't expect the quilting, but I like it! Leaving the ghost cogs blank would make them stand out

I agree.........leave the ghost cogs blank or they will not show as much.

I love the ghost cogs! I'm a big fan of negative space, and you utilize it beautifully!

Gorgeous colours, and as above I would leave the ghost clogs to be themselves. Just popped over from Lets Bee Social, nice to meet you, and good luck with your move, doesn't sound like much fun :(

Love the quilting on this piece! Keep going, so worth it!

Marsha Cooper said...

That is one special doll, or girl, that will get a doll quilt with so much work put in to it!

I think this just keeps getting better. Love the "wheelie" quilting and I'm really digging the plain ghost cogs. Beautiful work.

Very impressive quilting. Although I am not usually an avid fan of "modern quilting" your quilt is changing my mind enough that I felt I had to comment. I think the pops of color coupled with the quilting texture variation is very very striking. Your skills may be making a fuddy-duddy quilter a convert.

This is turning out wonderful. I assumed you would leave the ghost clogs blank - but if they were quilted, I would imagine little designs as if the fabric was there. (little fabric patterns). Darn those landlord for being what they are - just "no good". Sigh - I do hope things work out quickly and to your advantage.

I love how you changed the plain diamonds into those round-appearing shapes. Great job! This is turning out to be fun, isn't it? I'm sorry your landlord is a boogerhead.

Sorry to hear about your difficult move. Hope things get better. That doll quilt is coming along nicely.

I like the simplicity of this quilt and I also like that the different areas of the quilt are quilted differently. Part of it looks like sashiko.

Nicky said...

Definite Sashiko feel to the quilting - what a lot of attention to detail! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday!

it's looking fantastic! I love the ghost cogs and think you should leave them unquilted so they stand out.

Esther Aliu said...

How interesting, I'm really taken by the ghost cogs too!
