Easy Machine Quilting Design #7

We're in the home stretch of our Anniversary Mini Quilt Along and today I'm quilting the purple diamonds in the Twin Rainbow Stars quilt with a beautiful design called Chain of Pearls!

Quilting circles can be tricky, but I always find it easier when I'm quilting the circles between lines. Something about the lines makes it easier to estimate and visualize the circle's shape, making it easier to quilt them free hand.

Learn how to machine quilt an easy quilting design in real quilt with Leah Day!

I absolutely love Chain of Pearls because it's so simple - just curvy lines and circles - but the texture is always a knock out! What do you think of this machine quilting design?

Yes, you still have plenty of time to join in this fun mini-quilt-along! We've posted the free quilt pattern right here. 

You can piece the quilt and follow along with each video guiding you through walking foot quilting, then free motion quilting each space with a different design. Check it out and be sure to share this project with your quilting friends!

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day
