Square Scramble - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner + Bonus Video

Lynne made this darling version of the Square Scramble quilt and sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. I actually custom machine quilted the original version of this quilt a few years back, you can check it out here. It's always so flattering when a client likes the original version so much that they ask for their to be quilted the same. 

I loved quilting this quilt. I did use my statler stitcher to quilt those large gray squares. It's something that I could have totally done with a ruler, but since I have the statler stitcher, this was a great place to use it.

While I was quilting the quilt I snapped the image below and shared it over on Instagram, I had a few people ask if it was trapunto work on those gray squares. It's not, it's just the texture that is created from the batting and my machine quilting.

I also filmed this fun little video while I was quilting. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for letting me machine quilt your beautiful quilt Lynne!

I used Quilters Dream Cotton Batting and SoFine! thread by Superior Threads.

  1. I made this pattern with sushi and ninja fabrics - looked great but still love the solid fabric choice. I meandered in the background area - too chicken to pebble that part. As usual great quilting!!!

  2. I bow to your greatness on how round your freehand circles are!!!! Amazing!!!!!
