#424 - Free Motion Quilt Broken Eggs

Several years ago I posted a cute little Cracked Eggs design which was basically Pebbling with a wiggly line through the middle.

Today I'm feeling inspired by eggs again, only this time I'd like to incorporate the swirly runny yolk to create Broken Eggs:

It's amazing to see what a few simple lines of quilting can do when they all come together. Honestly this really didn't come out the way I was expecting, or the way I was seeing it in my head, but I'm loving the swirling texture anyway!


After filling the block completely with Broken Eggs, I looked down at the texture and saw little sunshines inside all that swirling texture. I'll definitely have to give this design a try again with a slightly different inside circular design to see what happens!

Let's go quilt,

  1. Cool! When I look at this design, it looks like the egg is down inside a pit with the swirly up on top. Does that make sense? Very cool design. I like it. Have a super day!

  4. I love the almost 3-dimensional look of this, with the swirls in the foreground and the remainder of the pattern back.
