Good morning, my quilty-loves! Since many of you may be experiencing Modern Quilts Withdrawal Syndrome now that QuiltCon has wrapped up, I thought I'd share Jane's Floating Triangles quilt with you to make that modern quilting magic last a little longer. Also, I just finished it a few days ago and I am so excited about how it turned out.

I stitched Donna Kleinke's Spiral 3A design on Jane's quilt, a design we selected to play up the feeling that the pieced triangles are swirling around in constant motion. I am always on the lookout for digital quilting designs like this one that are unusual and that can create a custom quilted look when paired with the right quilt top. I am just delighted with how this turned out for Jane.
Quilters Dream Bamboo/Silk/Cotton blend batting was used for this quilt (this post contains affiliate links). I chose lightweight So Fine thread in Blizzard to ensure that areas of overstitching remain inconspicuous and to maintain the uninterrupted color of Jane's saturated Grunge fabrics (skinny threads tend to take on the color of the fabric, so the bright white So Fine thread appears to be orange, yellow or pink where it crosses over colored fabrics. Thicker white thread would create more visibly white lines of stitching across those fabrics).
