This skill builder quilt has been a perfect project for me to work on to sharpen my free motion quilting skills. Alyssa from Pile O’ Fabric has designed this gorgeous Technicolor Galaxy pattern. I’ve complete the center portion and have a ways to go before the whole quilt is complete, but I’m excited for the whole process!
I love it when quilts inspire the kind of free motion quilting designs I want to create. In this case, I chose varying designs for the different portions and it was so fun to play with new techniques including piano keys, scallops, ribbons and pebbles.
The shapes were fused down onto muslin and then joined together using white bias binding. I think I might make this same center medallion into a pillow or something someday. I love it so much!
I love when the back of a quilt is nearly as beautiful as the front. This makes me want to try a wholecloth quilt someday to keep working on free motion quilting designs.
I can’t wait to see my Technicolor Galaxy quilt grow!
