Tuesday Tutorial-Woven Cross-Hatch

Woven Cross Hatch Tutorial

Today we are going to try a very easy filler…the Woven Cross-Hatch.  This may have another name, if anyone knows it, please chime in…

I started with The Stencil Company’s Geranium Stencil (read more here and here)…but you could draw your own grid.  This grid space is 3/4 inch in this small quilt.

Start in one corner, weaving in and out.  Try to cross the drawn intersections with your stitching lines.

Once you get to the end of the line, weave back on the same drawn line, but in the opposite direction, creating an “eye” shape.  Then take a few straight stitches to get to the next drawn line.

Repeat as above on the next drawn line.

In no time at all, you will have a little rhythm going…As you can see mine are not perfect…

Once you get to the corner, you will start in the perpendicular direction…This is when it gets really fun because now you can see the pattern…

The Stencil Company has several grid templates (here)  I love the Geranium stencil because it is so versatile, but I also use the 10 x 10 inch Line Design stencil quite a bit.

Please check out all the tutorials in the Quilt Section above…

I have to get to my sewing machine now…I have a Shamrock Doodle Quilt dancing a jig in my brain…

  4. Lori, Hi and Happy New Year to you. I have ‘lurked’ on your website for ages ( I am the one that puts trimmings on the compost heap gg) but now I am going to take courage in both hands and have a go at the above FMQ. However, I have a question; when you get to the end of one pass across your grid, and need to go back to make the ‘eye’ do you swivel the work, or stitch backwards by pulling the block/quilt toward you?
    TIA
