“When the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful…
As long as you love to sew…
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…!”
Good Morning Quilters and Quilt-Lovers!
Welcome to the 2015 Edition of Tuesday Tutorials! Another 50 Tutorials already in the works….
Just to get you warmed up, we’ll start with a pair of mittens-The Wooly Mittens.
This motif could be stitched in a border OR use the connecting stitches to travel to create an allover motif to cover an entire quilt.
So let’s get started:
Begin by drawing three lines or “rails” (NOTE–Rails are guidelines to help keep stitching straight or to help maintain proportions.)
Draw the top and bottom lines, two inches apart.
Draw the middle line 3/4″ above the bottom line.
Begin stitching on the middle line. Stitch a rounded petal shape and stop before reaching the middle line.
Stitch down one stitch and echo stitch this line.
Add a Snowflake…and begin again.
They go ice fishing, sledding…
But then again, some of us stay INSIDE…
PS…Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the First Installment of our Free Motion MYSTERY Quilt-a-Long….It’s going to be fun, fun, fun! (and educational!)
