In my quest to find ways to improve my free-motion quilting (FMQ) skills, I’ve found an excellent collection of designs.
“More Twice-Quilted Designs For Continuous-Line Quilting”, by Glorianne Cubbage, published by Martingale & Company, home of That Patchwork Place, is an excellent collection for those interested in learning and/or improving their free-motion quilting skills.
The premise of the “Twice-Quilted Designs” is that you simply stitch the first design in one color to quilt the layers together, and then add the secondary design in a different color for a spectacular finish.
This collection of designs includes 20 “interlacing” designs, which include beautiful layered flowers, leaves, hearts, birds, and more.
There is also a 16 page booklet, with this collection of designs, which provides complete instructions for tracing, transferring, and sewing.
Each of these quilting designs comes on a 23″ by 20″ paper, unbound. A novice may wish to trace these patterns, but they are great tools to emulate the designs on paper, before you proceed to stitch them out on fabric.
These 20 designs will certainly add interest to any quilt you choose to use them on. But insights are also provided to help you create your own designs.
This is a great resource for those interested in improving their free motion quilting skills and/or looking for new design ideas. This is definitely a collection full of goodies for free-motion quilters! I’m eager to apply each of these designs to my quilts!
