Koch Snowflake Quilt — Quilting

June 7, 2008 at 3:30 pm | Posted in Patchwork, quilt | 1 Comment

After buying the batting and some quilting thread last Saturday, I’ve managed to assemble the quilt sandwich last week and yesterday evening finally started with the machine quilting. It took me a while to come up with a suitable pattern, though. I wanted to emphasize the star forms, and still have a pattern that somehow works with the fractal theme of this quilt. While digging around the site I linked to in my last post, I came across some coral-like structures. Those are created by having something (a point, a line, a circle etc.) that points that randomly move around the plane can attach to, and in turn other points to the evolving structure. Looked like a good pattern for quilting to me. So what I did is to imagine all the “points” of the stars as attractors and build those coral-like structures from there. Here’s the result on the first part I quilted:

Works well, I think. I chose the thread colours similar to the fabric, so the star structure doesn’t get lost. Now on to the second part, I can see the finish line in sight! 🙂
