Organic Line Quilting

The front of my wonky star quilt.
I really love straight-line quilting, but it doesn't go with the wonky style of blocks that I have been drawn to lately. I discovered the concept of organic straight line quilting (tutorial at Tallgrass Prairie Studio) and fell in love! I've always been more of a free-motion stipple quilter, or a straight outline quilter. Organic line quilting takes the best of both worlds and combines them. My biggest concern was I would start skewing my lines and under up with more of an angle than I would like. I ended up using two entire spools of thread - but then again, this is one the biggest quilts I've made in awhile. Overall, I really liked the effect, and for the first time - I actually machine washed and dryed a quilt to make it all crinkly!
