Modern Chic and Jazzy, Part Two

I wrote a previous blog about sewing the top for this fun and modern quilt.  This one is about the quilting.

I played around with a couple of different ideas for the quilting.  At one point, I thought that I might do feathers.  At another point, I thought that I would do a lot of circles and other fun stitches.  In the end, I went with the more modern approach, and I ending up liking it a lot.

The quilting templates that I bought from Jamie Wallen a make it so easy make nice small circles.

Since I made this quilt for our charity auction, I was not being that careful in the quilting.  I don't know if this is a bad thing or a good thing, because once I give myself the license to NOT worry about it being judged, it gets progressively sloppier and sloppier.  But sometimes, it's nice to give yourself a little more artistic freedom and go for the fun and not for the perfection.  Don't you think so too?

So here it is all complete, with a close up to show you the quilting.
