Good Morning, Quilters!
Thank you to all who shared comments on Open Line Friday-Looking Back. It was a busy year all around! YOU are all inspirational!
Today we are stitching an easy motif that has rhythm. Once you get started, you won’t want to stop…It’s like quilting in a rocking chair.
Begin by drawing two parallel lines to serve as guidelines. In the sample below, the lines are a generous 1 inch apart. (If you’re quilting a border, the seam lines will serve as guidelines.)
Begin quilting between the two lines. Stitch down-curving in, sweep the bottom line and curve back up.
Curve up to the top line, sweep the top line, and curve back down.Curve down and to the left, sweep the bottom line and curl back up.
Continue stitching curvy lines between the two guidelines. Once you develop a rhythm, bring the lines together, closing the gap between the curvy lines.
Perfect! Just like Ribbon Candy.Ribbon Candy
tastes looks great in any size–try doubling it!For a large border, stitch rows of Ribbon Candy with another motif in between–fun!
Doodle this for a few minutes, then head right to your sewing machine. It’s easy!
We’ll be doing another motif that builds on Ribbon Candy later this month.
