E-zine Free Quilting Pattern Before Anyone Else

“Geometric Flower”

Time to add a decorative touch to those quilting stitches with this fabulous line pattern!

Feel free to adjust the size and include this design to your next project.

Here are the steps to complete it:

Remember, these are only suggestions. You know what’s best for your quilt.

Make sure you pay attention to your placement so you don’t lose your guide.

Once you have your quilting cookie assembled, its time move on to the actual quilting.

This is such a simple design that we know you might want to use it again and again. That is why it is best to print out the free geometric flower line pattern and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil. Here we describe how to make your own stencil.

Align your template to where you want your lines to be.

Mark the template image using your favorite method. This could be fabric markers, pencils, quilt pounce, etc.

Now that the image of the pattern has been transferred to your quilt top in the sections you are working, place your quilting stitches along the lines.

Then move on to the next section and the next and so on until all of the quilting on your top is completed.

When your quilt is quilted, bind the edges with your choose method, and add your label.

Voila! Your quilt is now a finished masterpiece.
