Red & White Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Barbara made this beautiful red and white quilt. She sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. Even though the fabric colors give the quilt a bit of a traditional feel, Barbara wanted the machine quilting to bring a bit more modern feel to this fun quilt.

I decided that it would be fun to mix straight lines with some curved ruler work, really mixing the combination of modern and traditional.

I also really decided to play up the secondary diagonal lines that are created in the quilt with the piecing. 

In each of the lighter rows I machine quilted straight lines and small arcs in the smaller half square triangle blocks. Then in the larger triangles I used my favorite curved rulers and quilts a fun curved motif. I really love how it turned out.
Thanks for letting me machine quilt your beautiful quilt Barbara!

I used Quilters Dream Batting and So Fine! thread by Superior Threads.
