Lyn made this cute quilt for her granddaughter, using a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. She asked for custom quilting, and with all this negative space to fill it was a longarm quilter’s dream! I quilted it using a technique I learned from Angela Walters. She recommends picking four or five different background filler designs and then just start quilting them, alternating them as needed, quilting whichever one you feel like at the moment. This creates interesting texture and keeps me from overthinking. I usually pick pebbles as one of my designs because they make it easy to fill smaller spaces and allow me to travel wherever I need to go. I think you can tell how much fun I had with this project!
