This is my Nordika Giant Plus. She was made with Kona white and a set of fat quarters from the Nordika fabric line. I finished her a while ago now, at the beginning of March but somehow I kept putting off showing her off here.
These first pictures are after a wash and dry. One of my worries getting the long arm machine was that the detailed quilting would disappear into the after washing bumps. I am so pleased to see that it does not do that.
This quilt was the first one I quilted with my own new long arm. She is a sampler of quilting patterns I know or wanted to try.
I learned that I am better at some designs than others.
I am totally sold on wavy lines as a quick and easy filler for backgrounds. You are going to see them on a lot of my quilts.
I so pleased that the quilting shows so well on the tea dyed text print on the back.
It also shows up nicely when the quilt is being held up.
These next photos are before washing. The quilt is "flatter" and more cardboard like but you can certainly see the quilting better.
I really like that double loopy loop, and of course the dense matchsticking quilting in the grey plus.
That is supposed to be flowers in the black background flowers. That design needs work.
It will be a while yet before I tire of showing off my beginning quilting. I hope you don't mind.
The square stipple is another favourite of mine.
And one last photo after the wash. These were taken a few weeks ago, we have less snow on the ground today. I am still planning to make a pattern for my version of this simple quilt, I really like the layout where you don't fill in all the pluses.
This quilt is my fourth finish from my Q1 FAL list (which is here). I hope you are getting your last finishes in too - I can't believe that March is just about done, it will be spring soon.
