{Juniper} Marian Barn Quilt

Fun sewing continues here with the gorgeous Juniper line by Katie & Birdie for Moda Fabrics.

 This is a very Christmasy quilted wall hanging but oh! it still fits in around here with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground. I'm way ahead for Christmas 2021 : )

It is so cozy in the dining room right now with the winter sunshine streaming in.
I really love how this quilted wallhanging turned out.

This photo right here - love! With the sunshine, greenery, and quilting it really captures the feeling in this space - cozy, warm, and welcoming!

Wanted to change the quilting up a bit so I used the walking foot and did overall diagonal straight line quilting. I think the diagonal quilting really cozied up this wallhanging.
I'm always a bit nervous to do diagonal quilting as sometimes it skews the quilt then it doesn't hang straight. After a bit of trial and error I think I've figured out some things that help. This quilt hangs perfectly!  When diagonal quilting I need to remember to loosen tension and lengthen stitch length. These two adjustments have worked perfectly with the last two quilts that I have straight-line quilted on the diagonal.
