Do you ever see a quilt pattern that is designed as a border, but you need a “fill” pattern? Have you ever admired a square free motion quilt motif, but you needed to fill a circle? Today’s challenge is designed to help you think of ways to modify any pattern to suit your quilting needs.
Change any of the free motion quilt motifs found HERE (or by clicking the Red Apple in the Sidebar) into an all-over or “filler” pattern and show us your results. Doodle or stitch–we’d love to see it!
In the image above, I used The Sailboat tutorial and modified it to use as an all-over, continuous line design. It took a bit of doodling, but I think it will look great on a summer quilt I am planning. This practice piece (etude?–sounds more polished?) was stitched with Robison Anton Rayon on top and Aurifil 50wt in the bobbin using a Schmetz 80Topstitch needle on my Bernina 820–a domestic sewing machine with an extended harp space–without a BSR.
Please share your trials with the group by linking up below–just follow the smooth sailing InLinkz instructions–easy! Once you’ve all had a chance to try InLinkz, I will be offering new challenges and new ways to win a few very nice prizes!
