My goals before I left on my travels were to get a few things done that have been languishing in the closet and to get all my class samples finished. Didn't quite achieve both, but I've made progress. I did finish all my step outs and samples for my Quilt Show Taping in Colorado next week.
I focused next on getting on my class samples done for my Stitch and Flip class. The Stitch and Flip class is turning into one of my favorites. It always amazes me how creative folks can get with this technique. People keep coming up with new designs and that keeps the class fresh and exciting.
I'm just about finished with this double version of the Swirling Medallion quilt from the book. I quilted spiraling circles because every time I look at this design I see a rock dropped into a pond and the ripples that extend into the water.
If you're in the area, check it out. There may be a space or two left.
PS...Margaret is the winner of the pattern. Congratulations!!
I'm dizzy! What a beautiful effect - thank you! Take care, Byrd
Awesome samples of using the technique - thanks! I was pleased to take Katie's Improv class last weekend...would love to take one of yours too! Thanks for inspiring!
Really love the last quilt ~ lovely!
These are Wonderful!! Love the way they look.
The quilts are so pretty..I must be way behind because I don't know how to stitch and flip....sounds fun
Ooo, I love these! Great examples of the versatility of the technique. That spiral quilting is phenomenal!
I am staying wordless...
I love all of the examples. Particularly the first "ripples". Gazing at it is nearly as calming as looking into a pool of ripples. I see you *swirled* out from the center as opposed to creating one circle after another. Trying to imagine how to maneuver the bulk through the machine... or is it free arm?
I love the fly a kite version. Thanks for sharing.
Really gorgeous! I bought your book specifically for this technique (although the rest of the book rocks!). Can't wait to try it out!
Those quilted circles are incredible!
I've been really wanting to play with this technique - if I ever get caught up with the must-do list :)
Love the overlapping quilting in the first one and the spiral effect in the next two. The meandering whimsy in Let's Go Fly a Kite is perfect with the airy effect of the Bella fabrics.
I love the spiral quilting. I did that on a quilt of mine (not so tight and not so perfect of circles like you did) but it turned out wonderful and yes it looks like rocks dropped in a pond. Do you have a online tutorial for your flip triangles I love fireball.
Oh that quilting is fabulous - two sets of spirals! WOW! :) Thanks, as always for providing some awesome inspiration!
Lots of great creations, Jacquie! I am completely in love with that kite top...
Good grief Jacquie these two samples are beautiful!!! Loving the rock in the pond ripple quilting on the first one!!
