Since I quilt, I'm showcasing quilting with the walking foot. And I've designed a fast and easy quilt for you so that you can use your walking foot to quilt it! In my 2nd video I'll be showing you how easy it is to install and use the Digital Dual feed is on my Destiny II.
Every designer in the challenge is sharing our 'first moments' when the new Destiny II arrived at our studios... Watch mine!
Now... I want you to make a quilt top!
My project uses part of a jelly roll + fabric to set between the coin strips.
You can use strips from the jelly roll as sashing to make scrappy sashing, or purchase fabric like I did for mine. The supply list and quilt directions are in the PDF pattern I wrote for you.
This will not use the full jelly roll but I wanted the variety that it gave me, plus i had this on hand. BONUS right! I bet you have a jelly roll sitting around. You can squeeze quite a few more coins out of what is left and make a slightly smaller one or use the extra's for my Solstice Quilt Challenge (going on HERE)
My Favorite day of the month is Aurifil Designer Challenge day! Our theme this year is the rainbow of colors found in the color wheel. Each designer is assigned a color going around the wheel and first up is the amazing Janet Clare.
Read on to see my tutorial on using light on dark fabric >>>
I am creating a light color cat on a very dark burgundy background. I don't want the burgundy to make the light fabric look darker. And if it had images, I would not want to those to show through, which is called Shadowing.
To prevent a shadow, I create 2 cat images.
One from white or muslin, the other the fabric I will use.
Fold the background square to find the 'middle', i finger press a placement crease.
Fuse the white cat
Now place the main cat on top
Fuse that and you are ready to stitch!
Janet created the features with Aurifil Floss, so I need to find that 'purr-fect' shade!
My Aurifil thread box makes that pretty easy.. i know.. it's a bit of a luxury but I called it a 'business expense'.. wink!
