Infinity Knot Quilt from Explore Walking Foot Quilting

Infinity Knot Quilt | Walking Foot Quilting

Infinity Knot Quilt
Finished Size: 66 inches square

This funky pieced quilt started out as a free quilt pattern I shared for Quilty Box in 2016. I pieced the quilt top together, but knew I wanted to add borders and design a really spectacular quilting design so I set it aside for a few months to figure out what I wanted to do with it.

When picking out the patterns to include in the book Explore Walking Foot Quilting, I remembered Infinity Knot and decided it was the perfect quilt to showcase how to use multiple designs in one quilt. It was a challenge to quilt through all the angles and curves of this quilt with walking foot quilting, but I love how it turned out!

This ended up becoming one of the most intricately quilted quilts from the book. Here you can see I filled in the black and white knot area with River Path:

The red center squares were filled with Concentric Squares. I continued this angular design into the larger background squares. Using straight line designs next to curvy designs is a really good combination that catches your eye nicely.

In the border I filled in even more River Path, which really stands out thanks to the super puffy batting I used in the middle.

After quilting Infinity Knot with all of these pretty designs, this quilt became one of my favorite throw quilts. It’s a delight to curl up with on the couch and the fluffy batting is super warm. My only regret is I wish I'd used minky fabric on the back and then it would be super soft as well!
