Project QUILTING 13.5: Rhythm & Repetition

Rhythm & Repetition. This is one of those challenge themes that is so easy... but also quite difficult. So many things would work. Three of anything really. Three 4-patch blocks. Three chickens. Three triangles. The possibilities are endless! On my first challenge quilt this season I made a wholecloth quilt and toyed with making wholecloth quilts for each challenge. But then I used two fabrics for challenge 2. So here is my every other wholecloth quilt. I decided to take inspiration from Jacquie Gering and feature my repetition in the way of walking foot quilting. On a small scale. My initial grid is approximately 1/2" squares.

It sewed up quite quickly. I initially did no marking, using the edge of my walking foot as my guide fo the parallel lines and eyeballing the first horizontal line to be perpendicular to the vertical lines. Then I marked a small dot in the center of each square as my guide. I adjusted my stitch length for the zig zag quilting so I was taking exactly 3 stitches from corner to center of each square.

My quilt is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Fabrics are KONA Splash (front) and Jade Green (back and binding). It was quilted with 50wt Aurifil Jade (#4093).

I'm linking up on Kim's blog for the Project QUILTING Rhythm & Repetition challenge. Check out my previous challenge entries:
