How to quilt this bright quilt?

I decided on stylised flowers, starting with a couple of arcs, then tracking back with rounded ‘petals’ and an echo, before starting a new ‘flower’. This is a variation on the open headband motif that I’ve done many times before.

The thread was a variegated pink, even though it’s called ‘Mauve’, which is a light purple where I come from!

Threads used:

  • Top: Fil-Tex Affinity ‘Mauve’ (40 wt, trilobal polyester, colour 60149)
  • Bottom: Fil-Tec Magna Glide Classic pre-wound bobbin (white)

What machine do you use for your quilting?

I use a Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen (sit down mid-arm machine), where I move the quilt under the needle, as I would if I used a domestic sewing machine.
