Throw Size Quilting Details
The quilting on this quilt was completed by Just Sew Jane in a modern geometric edge to edge design. I love how the angles jump out in the background white space of this quilt design!
Helpful Tools for Making this Modern Quilt
I found these quilting tools particularly helpful while making my own Keystone quilt:
AccuQuilt vs. Stripology Ruler
Are you wondering whether AccuQuilt or a Stripology ruler would be more useful on the Keystone Quilt? I actually used both! I love using my AccuQuilt any chance I get, especially if I am cutting shapes that would end up needing to be trimmed such as flying geese or half square triangles.
The AccuQuilt machine comes in incredibly useful for the Flying Geese and Square-in-a-square quilt block units in the Keystone Quilt. For all the other shapes, I personally chose to use my Stripology XL ruler.
