The Running Man

Thought you might want to see how the quilting transformed the Running Man quilt into a finished piece.  It'll hang in my hubby's office when the remodel is done.

Your creativity really inspires me. What size is this for reference?

Tami @ Lemon Tree Tales said...

It's almost, but not quite a large fingerprint over the entire quilt. It adds a lot of movement too.

Robin McCallister said...

So dang cool!!!!!

Beautiful! I love how it really draws the eye to the curves implied by the rectangular blocks. Your work totally inspires me! Thank you!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Nicely done! Out of curiosity, what is the size of this quilt?

Judi Fenton said...

Jackie, Love your 'running man' quilt! Very inspiring.

Angela said...

Super cool! I love it!

Chris said...

Stunning! For me, the machine quilting is one of my favorite parts of the quilting process. I would love to try a similar all-over quilting design, but I wonder: what is the key to keeping the piece square with all of the stitching ? And I see no distortion whatsoever, it looks perfect. Also - you must be patient to complete all of that stitching, too! This will be awesome in an office!

I love your running man quilt! It's so inspiring! Thank you for sharing.

Leanne said...

I love it, the quilting is perfect!

LynT said...

Love your new quilt.
Sorry you had that disparaging comment. I have tried many styles of quilting and didn't feel "at home" until I tried Modern especially those you have in Lucky Spools.
Actually I am still looking for a pattern for Outside In, is there a pattern and where can I purchase it.
Ps. You walking foot tutorial is the best, I don't every won't to try feathers or such ever again.

Patti said...

I love the movement of this quilt. Cool idea. And the number fabric really fits.
