I always, always, always get questions from blog readers about the quilting motif I use on everything. I love it. Once you get the hang of it doing it is no problem at all.
I’ve done it on so many quilt….Blue Skies….
I think that picture shows it off the best..but you can see it on the next quilt too.
I used it on Winston Ways….
Well here is the video that I watched and learned how from…..
I spent lots of drawing it out on a white board before I attempted to do it on a quilt. I TOTALLY promote practicing on a white board.
Here’s a few more quilts I used the motif on…. Maybe it’s time I try another…
I feel like it is every a wrong choice. There might be better choices but it is never a WRONG choice.
I use it on most every charity quilt. One of the reasons I started using it on them is that I feel it’s more decorative than meandering or stippling. It’s a very dense motif so if the quilt is used a lot, it will stand up to many washing.
Also when I did charity quilts I found that I was often wasting time trying to figure out the “perfect” motif. Well once I started making this my standard, I completed a lot more quilt as I eliminated the decision process.
See, it’s never bad.
This is one of the very first times I used it….
I even did it in brown thread. I couldn’t have been happier when I was finished with it.
There are SO-SO many machine quilting videos on youtube.
I am adding a couple more videos that I found when I was on youtube looking for a link to the motif above.
and another one…
Have fun watching and learning…and don’t forget to grab a white board and pen to practice as you watch!!
