Finished “Sea Glass” today. I quilted it with a pantograph that included seahorses, conch shells, star fish, and fish with bubbles. The pantograph was a good way to learn to quilt the designs, but I didn’t like losing control of where the designs landed on the quilt. I am also opposed to the sameness of pantograph designs; each one being exactly like the other. I prefer free motion quilting in general, but sometimes new designs (sea creatures) overwhelm me, and I go for the sure thing.
In general I love the colors of this quilt, and the block design. It was created with the Studio 180 Design
Diamond Rect tool. My previous post contained more detail.

I love everything about quilting. I love the colors, the feel of the fabrics, the piecing, the quilting , and even putting on the binding! I free motion quilt using a Bernina 780, longarm quilt (free motion or ruler work), on a Prodigy , and hand quilt when I get a chance.
I have been teaching quilting since 2004, and became a Certified Studio 180 Design Instructor in 2013. In 2020 I became an Island Batik Ambassador, and an Island Batik Designer in 2021. I teach locally at Bernina Connection, in Tallahassee, and travel to guilds and shops to share my love of quilting through a trunk show or workshops, and I also vend at several Quilt Shows in the area.
