Happy Tuesday, Quilters and Quilt-Lovers! I hope you have all had time to enter THE HUGE Giveaway–Including The Christmas Tree Quilt, Kona fabric by Robert Kaufman, Sulky thread and a copy of American Quilter magazine featuring “My Line…” Read yesterday’s post for all the details HERE.
CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN: 9 DAYS
By now (I hope) much of the Christmas shopping is complete and all you have to do is cook and clean and decorate and…
Wrap Packages! Pretty Packages!
Well let’s get started…
THE PRETTY PACKAGE FREE MOTION QUILT TUTORIAL
Begin by drawing two parallel lines or “rails” to keep the packages tidy.
In the tutorial below, the lines are two inches apart. Any spacing will work.
Begin stitching on the bottom line and stitch a square or rectangle. Stitch up the first side of the package to the middle. (Stitch right ON the previous line of stitching–it is offset here for demonstration purposes only.)
Stich two curved lines to create the ties. Return to the center of the package.
Or stack the packages to fill a large area.
Lot’s more quilting in 2014!
