WOW, another month flew by. I really don’t know where the time goes, but I did manage to accomplish quite a bit.
I made progress on my paper pieced quilt. The top is done, the border is pieced, but still has to be attached and I still have to go over the pattern once more and make sure everything is okay and to check the yardage before I release the pattern. After that I’ll create the quilting designs and do the quilting. Because I have so many interests and projects, it is taking me much longer than I had expected and new ideas are already swirling around in my head.
I did get new quilting designs finished for June – late, but now done and I’ll post those around the same time as this blog. If you are interested, please visit my website. This month I wanted to show how essential and versatile triangle designs are in quilting. There is hardly a quilt block that does not have a triangle in it. Okay, that is probably an exaggeration, but they are very common and can be used in different ways. Here are some examples:
There are 12 triangles on my New Design page. A few of them are not actually new, but I included them to show what you can do with a triangle. And prices are greatly reduced through the end of this month.
I also tried something new. These triangles are not only available as quilting designs, but also as embroidery files and as PDFs for free motion stitching. If your background is a light fabric you can place the fabric over the design and trace it. Or you could transfer the design to tracing paper and place that on top of the quilt and stitch right over the lines. If necessary you can reduce or enlarge the designs with the help of a copy machine.
Be careful not to order the wrong type. They are digital designs and I cannot send refunds once they are downloaded.
Here are the places where you can find them:
Quilting designs are located at www.quiltersniche.com/quilting/new.htm
Embroidery designs: www.quiltersniche.com/embr-mach-quilting/triangles-1.htm
Free Motion designs (PDFs): www.quiltersniche.com/freemotion/FMQ-triangles.htm
I plan to add more quilting designs for embroidery machines in the future. As for the free motion designs I have to wait and see how much interest there is for those.
Until next time,
