Today is the last of a series of Tuesday Tips based on Darlene Conroy’s Glacier Star quilt from a pattern by Judy Niemeyer of Quiltworx. These have been fun tips to do. I am sort of sad this is the last one… But there will be other great topics to come.
As with the others, I have ditched the area with invisible thread. This is a step I never skip, as I think it adds so much definition to the quilt.
For this design, I started by marking dividing lines from the points of the snowflake outward, lining the ruler I used to do this up with this point and the center of the snowflake (you can see my purple mark in the photo below).
Then I used the same ruler to crosshatch this space (see above and below).
Then I echoed the outside of this cross hatching. In the photo above you can see I marked a spot for this echo so they are all the same size. Then I filled around the snowflake points with pebbles (see above).
My favourite part of this quilt!
Too much fun!
Till next Tuesday, you will find me loving what I do!
