It’s Tuesday! Time for my Tuesday tip! Today I am going to show you how I stitched out the background on my Kismet quilt. I am calling it Chenronish Fill (see picture below) for lack of a better term. The main point of this blog is how I stitch it out continuously!!!
My internet was particularly poor, so I hope there are not too many errors….after 4 hours of trying , I said good enough….
I planned out this design, and then sat there thinking, there has got to be a systematic way of stitching this so I am not starting and stopping all over the place. Then I noticed that the white has pathways that move all accross the quilt. I started at one edge and systematically stiched out the design.
I have a series of photos and directions. Then at the end is a video clip.
1. First I marked out my dividing lines. I could just stitch these with a ruler and no marking, but I find I make more mistakes that way.
2. Then I start on the left and work toward the right with my design.
3. Stitch a line on the left of the chevron area.
Here it is in video form….
Now I am off to QuiltCon 2016 in Pasadena! Taking some awesome classes! I love learning!
I love what I do….
