Now that we've learned what designs work well in a quilt block from Part 1, let's watch the other three blocks being filled in free motion!
Here is a video of a Circle of Daisies block being filled with Wandering Clover:
This is the finished block with Wandering Clover:
Pointy Paisley and Trippy Triangles:
Here's what the Pointy Paisley block looks like when it's finished:
Trippy Triangle Block:
That let's you know just how time consuming this level of quilting can be, but I really think the level of texture and design added to the block is absolutely worth it.
Compare the filled blocks to this is a photo of a plain block, essentially what the blocks look like if you just stitch them in the ditch:
But now that you've seen these videos, I really hope you'll look at your quilts in a slightly different way and see the possibilities for adding more textures for filler designs within the blocks.
As I said at the end of the wandering clover video - There is always room to play!
Of course, there are many more places to add texture within the Circles of Daisies quilt. Definitely tune in next weekend as we work through the Sashing in Part 3 and the borders in Part 4!
