Fun Machine Quilting Grid Designs

I've been experimenting a lot lately and trying new quilting designs. I had a pretty boring grid block to quilt in my Building Blocks cheater cloth quilt so I decided to try three different ways to quilting the grid designs:

I loved playing with these grid designs and I plan to try even more! The grid creates a solid base for the lines to flow and allows you to form interesting repetitive patterns without marking. While the lines are permanent on this fabric, the quilting design still stands out because the stitching flattens out the quilt and adds beautiful texture over the surface.

When quilting the Robbing Peter to Pay Paul design, I got a bit lost in the grid and had to think about how to quilt the arch shapes so the design would remain continuous. I think with more practice this could become very easy so you don't even have to think about it.

What do you think of grid designs? Have you tried marking a grid on fabric and quilting over it with a different design? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Let's go quilt,
