I am linking this post to Free Motion Friday. I have been quilting on Brad’s quilt.

I anchored the entire quilt by using my walking foot to echo an outline of all the blocks. Then I free motion quilted a grid in the nine-patches.

Here is the front of the quilt.

I had to use the flash to get my camera to photograph the black fabric, so these photos are a bit washed out. The backing is actually a very nice grey on black fabric.

It is easier to see the quilting from the back. I used white thread which pretty much disappears on the front and pops on the back.

In the borders, I used the "Tree Roots" pattern by Leah Day.
