Playing on a different medium...canvas. It didn't give me the tensioning hickups I expected. I have a customer wanting this very fabric quilted, and I am a little stumped creatively as to how to "geometrically" quilt in the style of the fabric, and still have it look good. Freehanded geometric is just an oxymoron. It will just look sloppy if not executed perfectly.
Not wanting a floral design, I tried something different. To me, this pattern settles the busyness of the geometric fabric, without competing with it. The wavy motion sings to me nicely, but I'm not the determining factor. Really I just want a good idea that is more interesting than stippling.
Don't get me wrong, stippling works just grand, and many people love it, but I prefer it when the stitching is not so evident, and all stitching shows on this fabric due to the multitude of colors. Stippling is a perfect quilting for more printed fabrics (less solids), and less variation between fabrics and thread. Just my opinion.
