Today we have a white fabric with gold stitching for you to try…(Just kidding!…Read more HERE.)
Sorry I missed you yesterday. Monday is paperwork day so I don’t always have time to post. Yesterday, I was busy organizing my files…and then pretty soon I wasn’t organizing my files…
Today I have a very easy and very versatile motif for you to try: The Paperclip. I’m sure you will agree–it sure beats filing papers and paying bills!
The Paperclip Free Motion Quilt Tutorial
Begin by drawing two parallel lines. (Remember, if you are stitching a border with two parallel seams, you don’t need to draw any lines…)
Begin stitching on the bottom rail. Stitch up to the top rail and curve down. Stop several stitches before the bottom rail.
I really did not want to stop stitching it…
Perhaps I was just procrastinating…THE Paperwork Beckons…

PPS…This tutorial was stitched with Aurifil 50 wt cotton in the bobbin and Sulky 40 wt cotton on top, using Warm and Natural cotton batting on my BERNINA 820 (without a stitch regulator.)
