Remember these bits of split squiggles I was playing with after the workshop with Gerry Chase? They've been sitting on my design wall for a while, and I liked them so much that way that I decided to place them on a white field and leave it at that.
Then they sat on the wall, pinned to white fabric for ages, while I thought about how to quilt them. I finally opted to scribble-quilt around them. I did some on my tabletop Bernina, and some on the Juki mounted on the quilting frame. (Because Pam showed me that you can use do both on the same piece. Duh.)
My photo skills aren't the best, and it's hard to photograph an essentially white quilt anyway. But you get the idea. Here's a detail shot to show how I quilted it.
Given that this was one of those things where I had no idea where I was going from one step to the next (hmm, what happens if I try this? And what if I do this?) I had pretty low expectations all along. But I'm pleased with the result.
