I really like your quilting pattern! Great job!!
Since you intend to use this as a wall hanging...DON"T WASH it...ever... vacuum if it gets dusty...but I bet not even that will happen if you only put it up during the Christmas season.
Dee I love that design. Is there a place I can find how to do that? I have a Baptist fan set on groovy boards but I really like that one.
all done & hung. The rod is a bit low but not worth moving it. Good point about the washing. I used Warm & White, so it won't really crinkle too much anyway.
Here is a link to a video - free on youtube.
And a detailed picture from the class.
She also has a freehand baptist fan that I've done that I like also - picture from class - I don't see a video on this one but I'm sure you can figure it out. It is more freeform, doesn't follow rows.
Wowsers! A free-form Baptist Fan??? I do like the look! And that sure would be a lot easier to quilt, as you don't need to do all that backtracking! Thanks for the link.
there are two versions. One is pointy, the other more random. I couldn't find a free video of the random one, but here is the picture of the one I did as a practice. I was surprised how easy it was - I only got lost a couple of times on which way to go with the 1st (center) circle/arc. the teacher has a number of free videos. I like her voice & pace, though she does repeat a bit after a while. I've gotten a number of hints from her that have helped me - my fav is using a plexiglas sheet & dry erase marker to preview AND PRACTICE a design. For some reason I like it better than paper - maybe because it's so easy to erase and try again. I already had a sheet lying around, but now I want to go get a couple more.
I've used a plastic sheet & dry erase marker to preview & practice a design right on the quilt top also. I like this technique because it lets you see it in the proper scale. Many times, when I've printed out a copy of the quilt top, the design seems great on paper but when I get to the actual top, the scale is horribly wrong. :-(
Thank you for the link I will have to watch that. Baptist fan is one of my favorite designs and both of those look really nice.
