E-zine Free Quilting Pattern Before Anyone Else

“Daffodil Line”

Add a little floral motif to your quilting stitches!

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 it out and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil. We describe how to

make your own stencil here.

Here are the steps to complete it:

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.

Tada! Your quilt is now a finished masterpiece.

Online Quilting Class Review

We've been taking a new class.

Design it, Quilt It: Free-Form Techniques with Cindy Needham

This online quilting class covers a lot.

That's why we've broken it down.

In last month’s issue we covered the first 4 lessons.

Now we’ll cover the next 4.

Here’s the breakdown of the 5 - 8 of the 11 lessons:

Lesson 5 – Stencils. Cindy Needham teaches us not only how to use a stencil, but also how to break it down. Then she shows how to take bits and pieces of several stencils and put them together to make one of a kind creations!

Lesson 6 – Medallions. This lesson is essential if you like to make whole cloth quilts.

Cindy teaches how the quilting can take center stage.

We now have a new favorite technique because of this lesson!

Lesson 7 – Design Basics. This lesson teaches us how to hide piecing mistakes with our quilting.

Cindy goes over how to place your stitches to get the best desired effect onto your quilt.

Lesson 8 – The Basic Three. Don’t have a stencil?

You won’t need one with the basic three designs Cindy shows you.

These awesome creations are perfect on their own or used as a filler.

We’re particularly fond of the S-curve designs.

This online quilting class is a rather long and involved one so we're watching and reviewing it in sections.

Next month we’ll review lessons 9 - 11.

We loved the first 8.

The last lessons will sure to be having us chomping at the bit to start our next quilting project.

Wrap Up

We hoped you enjoyed this month’s issue of our quilting newsletter.
