Mama Gypsy Quilting! Final Post!

It has been fun posting about my Mama Gypsy, and the QAL that y'all participated in. It has been so great to see the projects and finished quilt tops in my Mama Gypsy Group

The above photo is a picture of the bonus HST quilt that I made with the leftover half-square triangles from Mama Gypsy top. I had a lot of fun putting the scraps together and creating this fun design.  I also loved quilting it as well.

I free-motion quilted my feather swirl design using So Fine white thread. This is one of my favorite quilting designs.  I do have it available as a digital design, but I also shared it as a tutorial a few years back, you can see that here.

I have been enjoying my Mama Gypsy quilt folded at the foot of my bed, so I apologize for the fold marks in the pictures. I hope you will enjoy the pictures despite that. LOL

I had a lot of fun quilting this top.  The large floral prints don't lend themselves to a lot of detailed quilting, and that is okay because I wanted the prints to be showcased as is. A simple one inch diagonal cross-hatch was perfect for that.

The accent blocks were fun to quilt up with the 1/2 inch square borders. The free-motion swirl pebbles were fun in the center.  I love the texture that it brings to the quilt.

Each of the blocks/sections were framed with a 1/2 inch line and then had the added texture. The center motif is my favorite though.

I wanted to play in the dark background of the quilt with a free-motion feather filler design.  I absolutely loved playing with this design.  It is freeing to quilt without thinking too much and enjoying the motion of it. I used a cool grey glide 60 wt thread for the quilting in the top as well as the bobbin.

The simple X in the border blocks is a perfect balance between the dense background - this helps to set the border blocks apart.

My Gypsy backing is perfect for this quilt. It shows off the quilting quite nicely.

This is a nice shot showing the border blocks being showcased perfectly within the dense quilting.

Ahh, isn't this texture amazing?

As far as quilting goes, this backing has to be my favorite. I love being able to see my work on both sides of the quilt.
