Red and White Winding Ways Completed

Here she is, quilted and bound:

I quilted the concentric circles using the Gammill Work Station accessory as seen here. It fits onto the table that normally holds pantograph patterns:

A stylus travels in groves in a template and guides the sewing on the quilt itself. With this concentric circle template, when one circle has been sewn, the stylus must be moved to the next size circle to make the second circle of quilt stitching.
I did seven rounds of concentric circles of quilting within each large white circle of patchwork over the entire quilt top.

As the concentric circles were completed, areas of curved cross-hatching developed:
I went back to each white circle of patchwork and quilted a flower design in its center using a 3.5 inch plastic template to get the partial circle that formed the petals:
I used large straight pins to mark the placement of the eight petals for each flower motif:


The blocks with white backgrounds and red crosses had this resulting quilting pattern:

I used a single layer of Hobbs 80/20 batting and cream colored Glide thread for this quilt. All the pieces for the patchwork were cut with the Accuquilt GO! Winding Ways die set.

    What a wonderful two color quilt and the quilting just makes it shine even more! Did you make the top as well?

      Linda, I did make the Red and White Winding Ways top. I am trying out this new theme from Word Press. Unfortunately, the search box is at the bottom so you have to scroll all the way down to find it. Enter “Red and White” in the search box and you will find links to two additional posts about my making of the R & W WW.
