Beside the colors and the bright yellow, I really like the quilting. I chose to drop in circles of three sizes across the quilt, overlapping some and leaving background space between others. I quilted in some rocks (as opposed to pebbles which are small) in the background. Then the fun began. I quilted in different motifs in the circles but where they overlap, I changed the motifs in each section. Scrolls, shells, spider webs, circles, feathers, swirls, anything goes!
I had so much fun with my crazy quilting, that I'm using it on the quilt that's on the long arm right now. The best thing about this technique is that I can just have fun and nothing has to be exact. I'm not a repeat-something-exactly-the-way-I-did-it-already kind of quilter. In fact, I'm not that kind of gal! I need lots of change and fun and out-of-the-box thinking. This Sunshine quilt definitely allowed for my type of craziness!
What kind of quilter are you? A repetitious or crazy quilter? Do you need to be inside the box or outside?
