I am quite pleased with the straight quilting I did on this table topper using the walking foot on my domestic sewing machine. I set the needle for a 1/4" away from the seam line (ditch). The angular effect makes it graphic. And yes, the end are skewed because of the 9 degree angle cuts I made on the sewn strips.
I thought these snow people looked quite happy to be playing in this woven winter wonderland of Island Batik fabrics.
It is thrilling to make (designed) something from a small amount of fabric.
