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!

We pieced and quilted Marvelous Mosaic, Prism Path, and the Rainbow Log Cabin quilt during the 2018 Walking Foot Quilt Along. Click Here to check out all the quilting tutorials to see how all three quilts were made.
