RE-ENTERING THE QUILTING WORLD Posted on 1 Nov 21:52 , 0 comments
It's been a long time since I've been "out in the world" at least the cyber-world, but I'm back now and have lots to share ... starting with SOME NEW PATTERNS! Today I'm sharing the latest new E2E pattern, but come back often for there will be new patterns going up each week.
The Inspiration: the fabric with the barbed wire looking print would make a great pattern ... looks a lot like ripples with little horns or stickery things poking out. The challenge was on and I was off to the design board.
The Quilt: Lois brought this quilt to me with very specific instructions. It is a gift for her nephew and must have absolutely NO frilly girly stuff in the quilting. The fabric is flannel, soft and cuddly and a beautiful collection of very manly colors and prints. The easy thing to do would be to quilt it with the ever popular 1102 Ripples E2E. It stitches quickly, smoothly, and just adds texture. No frills to this one. But that seemed so cliche - so easy. I looked to the quilt for ideas.
It wasn't quite as easy to design as I thought it would be but after sleeping on it over night, the next morning everything fell into place and I was ready to load the quilt.
And here it is quilted out ... stitches out quite smoothly and quickly, is an easy set up in repeat patterns, and if you're adept at using the fill feature you can have those side traveling lines trimmed right close to the edge of the quilt as you work your way down the quilt.
