Quilt Along #41 - Invasion of the Pods

I didn't have an actual quilt I could put this on, so I made it sample square. This was really fun. I used Paisley, Bed of Roses and stippling. 

Right after I did this, I read about using the plastic see through round quilting foot that came with my Janome Horizon.  It has guide lines on it, and is made to use for echo quilting!!   I plan to try it soon and post a comparison photo.  Echoing is not my strong suit, and the further apart the lines, the harder it is for me.

I think a bigger test piece would've shown up to pattern better but this did give me an idea of how to stitch it.


  1. I think you got a lot in your test square. Looks really good.

  2. Looks great Nicky! I like the large round foot when quilting bigger. For some reason the giant disc makes me automatically swing my lines of quilting out bigger. It's a lot harder to travel stitch though because it's hard to see your needle and where it's hitting the previous stitching. Just play and see how you like it!

  3. Great quilting...I think your echoing turned out pretty consistent. I use the Echo quilting foot on my machine and find it great for the bigger sweeping designs. I trialled it the other day on something smaller, more intricate and it annoyed the heck out of me, as I could not align it properly, i.e. by the time I followed the marking, the echo line was already at the end.
