Custom Machine Quilting a Modern Quilt - by Natalia Bonner

Nancy designed and made this super cool modern quilt. 
When she sent me this quilt I got so excited to quilt it, it's so cool and modern and could really have some great machine quilting. Nancy left the quilting up to me but she did like the idea of concentric circles and straight lines. 

I knew that the quilting needed to be crisp, clean and nothing frilly.

I decided to machine quilt straight lines in all of the applique pieces and then circles in the centers, I knew that I could really add to the pattern, without taking anything away from it. 
Because I really wanted the applique to pop I chose to quilt tiny straight lines in all of the background. It took a bit longer than I had planned, but I think the end result is totally worth it. 
The backing turned out pretty cool too!

Thanks for letting me machine quilt your beautiful quilt Nancy. Nancy will have this pattern available for purchase soon, check out her website.
